Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio

By Amy

Mezzacorona

That's ridiculously fun to say. It's even more fun to say if you feign an Italian accent a la the waiter in Lady & the Tramp.

Google Translate defines "mezzacorona" as "half crown." I'm not sure why the vineyard decided to go with that name, because it certainly doesn't match the majesty of the property where they cultivate their grapes. Mama miaset in the foothills of the Italian Dolomites. And with its rolling hills and sapphire blue skies, it's utterly and completely gorgeous.

But I digress.

Mezzacorona makes a delightful Pinot Grigio that complements soups, salads, and white meats. Its green apple and honeysuckle notes pair delightfully with crisp acidity, and make you think you've paid more for the bottle than you have. 

I've seen a bottle retail for $16, which isn't bad at all, but shhyou can find it here for only $8.70!

Augey White Bordeaux

By Amy

On a rainy Saturday night in September, I found myself in a situation familiar to all over-achievers: I was the first of my party to arrive at the restaurant. What's the best thing to do when you're waiting on the others? Why, peruse the wine list, of course! Never one to waste time, I grabbed the list and scanned, looking for something new to tickle my fancy, when I spotted my poison for the evening.

White Bordeaux? I thought. Hmm. . . 

I wasn't disappointed. This Augey White Bordeaux is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon with fresh aromas of citrus, apples, and a hint of lemon grass—it's not too sweet, either. It's a lovely pairing with chicken, fish, and goat cheese, and a steal for only $7.99 per bottle.

Barefoot Riesling

By Amy

Sometimes you just need a good, cheap wine. You really do. Whether it's Tuesday night and you've hard a hard day, or your friend calls with a frantic holy-crap-can-you-bring-the-wine? to a party, Barefoot Riesling is a good, crowd-pleasing staple that won't break the bank.

A sweeter white with hints of orange blossom and apple, this puppy retails for only $6.99 (though I frequently find it for $5!).
