Cheapism’s Best Budget Wines

The holidays are upon us and if you’re anything like me you’re about to enter into a heady mix of family, friends, and other relatives for dinners, parties, and just to catch up. Times like these call for wine. Lots of wine. Thanksfully, did some research to come up with a list of the best budget reds, whites, and sparkling wines that are perfect for this time of year. Here’s the list they came up with:


  • Jacob’s Creek Chardonnay
  • Dr. Loosen Red Slate Riesling
  • Château Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc
  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Meleni Chianti Borghi d’Elsa 2010
  • Dancing Bull Zinfandel
  • Mirassou Pinot Noir 2010
Sparkling Wine
  • Roederer Estate NV Brut
  • Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut NV
  • Freixenet Cordon Negro Extra Dry
All of the reds and white are $10 or under, and all of the sparkling wines are under $20. While we’d all love to put out the best wine available for every party we host and attend, sometimes having some affordable wines is the best option, especially when you’re hosting a party with dozens of people where your’e going to go through a lot of wine.
