My focus is good wine on a budget for everyday people. So every Tuesday I’ll post a wine-of-the-moment with simple tasting notes and a recipe pairing. The notes won’t be overly detailed or profound, but they’re not meant to be. Instead, they’re meant to be fun with a bit of insight into some bottles worth exploring. Enjoy!



Always for the lookout for budget wines, this Viognier made me smile. It delivers all of that rich, ripe, floral-tropical-honey-apricot flavor of its more expensive cousins, while keeping it honest with lemon-orange acidity and a hint of oak on the finish. Rich and full, it’s great with orange chicken from your favorite Chinese take-out. Around $9.






Tastes like:











tropical fruit, apricot, honey, orange twist, lemon zest
