Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand)
This is actually quite a bit more than I would normally spend ($31) but I got it as a gift one time and it was pretty good. Maybe a nice idea for a special occasion or a gift.
Lurton Pinot Grigio (Chile)
This is more in my price range ($12.95). An easy wine to drink.
Oggi Pinot Grigio (Italy)
We served this at our Christmas party. It is so affordable ($8.95!) but still impressive.
Vega Moragona Tempranillo (Spain)
I love Spanish reds. I had this one at a restaurant one time and loved it
Castello Di Neive Barbaresco (France)
Funny story about this wine. A few years ago it was listed in the Globe & Mail for top wines, so like any good Torontonian Yuppie, I went right to the LCBO to get my own bottle no matter the cost ($19.90 by the way), and of course they were sold out. They were sold out for several months after that, and then I was pregnant so I couldn't drink anyway. After over a year of waiting, I finally tracked down a bottle. It is a treat to buy, but worth it.
Konzelmann Pinot Noir (Canada)
We have been to this winery before so I like to support it. For fans of Sideways, you'll appreciate this Pinot Noir.
