Do you love wine?
Would you LIKE to love wine, but you’re intimidated and don’t know where to start?
Would you like to love wine, but your wallet starts to moan if you even look at those pricey bottles?
Well then you’re in the right place! Welcome to Good Cheap Wine! I’m Gary, your host with the corkscrew.
I’ve loved wine for a looooong time. Many (many, many) years ago I graduated from college, moved to a new city, and decided to join the local wine club. I didn’t know ANYthing about wine, but I had a lot of fun and made some great friends. And I decided this wine stuff was OK!
After a while the club president moved away, and they said “Who wants to run the club now?” And everybody else stepped back one step… whoops. Suddenly I was the Wine Club President, and I felt totally unqualified for the job. I mean I loved drinking wine, but as far as being educated and being able to organize the club, that was waaay above my pay grade! But over time I learned a lot, and it was a great experience.
Budgetary concerns have always limited my wine exploration. I really love world-class wines. I’ve had many $50 – $100 wines, and I adored them all! Any time my serious-wino friends pulled out an amazing bottle, I was first in line with my glass and thank you so much for sharing!!
But MY budget couldn’t play in that league. So I’ve always been on the lookout for great and affordable wines. You can get really excellent wines in the $10-$15 range — and even less. That’s the kind of thing we’ll be talking about at Good Cheap Wine.
We’ll also learn about wine. I know it can be intimidating — all those different grapes, different styles, different regions, fancy names — but we’ll cover lots of stuff and get you comfortable around a restaurant wine list.
