I was too excited when Georgia FINALLY passed that law to sell wine and liquor on Sunday. Now I don’t have to run out and find my alcoholic beverages on Saturday or spend an arm and leg at the local bars on Sunday.
Here are six of the best, cheap wines, wine experts drink:
Ben Flajnik: An Aromatic Sauvignon Blanc
Ben Flajnik is a winemaker at Envolve Winery in Sonoma, California, and star of The Bachelor‘s sixteenth season.
Ben’s pick: 2011 Envolve Sonoma Valley Sauvignon Blanc, $20.00
“I drink a lot of our Sauvignon Blanc during the summer. At Envolve Winery this has become known for its easy drinking, aromatic, crisp, clean style, and hence the reason it’s been dubbed our ‘Patio Pounder’ by fans.”
Tastes like: ”Beautiful aromas of pink grapefruit, honeysuckle, and lime.”
Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan: A Soft Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc
Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, is a Master of Wine and author of The Everyday Guide to Wine.
Jennifer’s pick: Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône White, $14
“It’s easy to sip, made up of over 50 percent Viognier, a fantastic breaking-into-summer grape with lovely floral aromas that remind you of spring, but luscious flavors of stone fruits we’re starting to see in the supermarkets now.”
Tastes like: White peach and apricot
Drink it with: Appetizers, fish, or Asian food
Tyler Colman: A Rich-Tasting Red Beaujolais
Tyler Colman, Ph.D., is author of A Year of Wine: Perfect Pairings, Great Buys, and What to Sip with Each Season and the blog Dr. Vino.
Tyler’s pick: Terres Dorées Beaujolais L’Ancien 2010, $17
“The low tannins make it a terrific summer red, since it can easily be served chilled.”
Tastes like: ”Red fruit and lively acidity.”
Drink it with: This food-friendly wine can be paired with roasted chicken, sausage, salad, and basically anything eaten for lunch on a deck.
