Best Wines Under $15


Professional wine taste tester... It's a tough gig, but somebody's gotta do it. And so the editors at Wine Enthusiast magazine have, once again, sipped and swirled and spit and sacrificed their way through thousands of wines in the name of consumer research and readership.

This year, they narrowed their list from 1,400 eligible wines to the top 100 picks under $15 (can I get an "amen?").

I don't like to spend a lot of money on everyday wine. It's one thing to splurge if it's a special occasion, but when the hubby and I are just casually sipping on a Wednesday night in front of Scandal (okay that's just me), I like to keep the price tag somewhere around $12.

Problem is: I often get stuck in a rut of buying the same go-to bottle over and over again. For me, it's Leese Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon. I know it's good, I know it's well priced, and I don't like to take the risk of trying something new and unknown. That's why I'm excited to use this list as a resource for branching out!

wine best buys

While I didn't recognize many of the wine names upon first sight, I have to say the research is rather interesting. Here are some fun facts I discovered checking out Wine Enthusiast's big annual list:

  • For the second consecutive year, a boxed wine made the top 10—Vin Vault NV Cabernet Sauvignon!*
  • There are Best Buy wines from 17 countries on the list, and more than 30 grape varietals are represented.
  • The top 5 features one of the most affordable, sippable rosés you could hope to find nationwide--Domaine des Carteresses 2016 Tavel.
  • #1 goes to Columbia Crest 2015 Grand Estates Syrah
