    The eleventh way
    “Group buying” (50-75% 0ff) is great

    I must disagree on imported wines. Many vintages from Australia, Argentina, and Spain are delicious and reasonably priced, and some domestic wines, particularly Napa Valley, have you paying more for the name. Strongly agree with “go to tastings” – in the end the only factors that matter are your palate and your wallet.

    The twelfth way: Don’t drink or stick with Mad Dog 20/20!

    My best advice is to try a lot of the less expensive wines and find ones that you like. There are an amazing amount of good tasting wines for under $10. Then once you know what you like, wait for the sales to take place and stock up.

    I think that things are changing a bit in regards to the foreign wines. There are still a lot of them that are expensive, but there are more from countries not typically thought of as wine producers hitting the market which are quite good and inexpensive. Thee are worth checking out — especially when they have big sales on them.

    “Avoid imported wine”? Nice plug for the local industry. I buy a delicious, real Mosel Riesling from Germany at the Aldi supermarket chain – for five dollars a bottle. Can Gallo, Mondavi and their California ilk offer the same price? Of course not. They must appear “exclusive” and “limited edition reserve” to the yuppies.

    “Cheaper” wines can be better than more expensive wines. I found an unoaked Chardonay for $9 bottle that is better than many $20 bottle oaks Chardonay. It takes looking, tasting and asking at local wine stores-forget grocery stores. Also, Rhone Valley varietals are less than more favorite/pricey varietals.
