Choosing A Wine Sampler Pack... Simplified

wine sampler pack is an ideal way to discover good wines you might like and wines that simply don't suit your taste.

The most important tip to remember is that wine is about taste and it’s a personal choice, so trust your taste buds. It’s always a good idea to try a wine before purchasing it, or at least base your wine buying decisions on what your friends or family recommend. Ultimately, use your own palate to make your choices.

You should also be patient with yourself because learning to buy good wine has quite a learning curve. The best way to learn is try many different wines and expand your wine cellar. People tend to find a wine they like and then stick with it spending little time experimenting with other wines. Why not explore other wines and find some other great choices?

Many of us love wine, but lack the budget that allows for expensive, "fine" wines. For that matter, I have found that if I want to enjoy wine regularly (which I do), I can't even afford $15 a bottle as that mounts up quickly in the old monthly budget. But fear not, budget wine enthusiasts, good wines, even fine wines are available on a shoe string.

Many people have already discovered the charms of Barefoot Cellars California and Big Kahuna wines, to the point of these good wines being virtually omnipresent on dinner tables everywhere. But did you know, or realize, that there are many, many quality varieties available through a host of other vineyards. Indeed, there are dozens of wines at half the price of say Yellowtail, that produce a sophisticated flavor, and are a more congenial match with most meals.

 


Little Oaks Winery is a California vineyard of singular note. I haven't tried all of their varieties, but their Carignane-Cabernet Red Wine Blend has a black currant, earthy and herbal taste, an excellent companion to a meal, easily competing with wines valued at two or three times their $5.00 - $6.00 per bottle cost. Most wineries do offer wine sampler packs, allowing you to try a variety of wines they produce.

I think you’ll find these wines zippy enough to stand on their own, quite nicely, beside a host of dinner entrees.

I will definitely keep my eye out for these California delights in the future, and at $5 a bottle, I know that it won’t break the bank if I create my own wine tasting packages for home.

Happy hunting. Try a few of the wine sampler packs below!
