Wine Founds April 2016 TOP 3 / Wine Theme Post 4/8

Posted by

 

Tasty, balanced and valuable wines are great but sometimes hard to find. Today I’ll share my top 3 wine founds of the month. There will be two whites and one red with short reviews. All of these are excellent, especially when compared to price – all are between 8-15€ (around 9-17$) per bottle.

 

Below I have photos, basic information and reviews of my new favorites. In case you want to learn more about tasting wine check my previous post! I have also written about my more professional wine tasting experience in Paris and wineware that will help you to host your own tasting.
