I don’t hunt for deals myself as I just buy the wines I really want and not something else because it’s discounted. If a deal on a wine that I enjoy hits me in the face then great, but other than that I just stick to my budget and buy what I want. The following are wines I buy that I think drink great for the price paid.
1. Lopez de Heredia Gran Reservas. 94 and 95 vintages were released this year and purchased for about $80-90 depending on the store. This is the best deal in wine in my opinion and I would probably spend much more than they charge to have these wines in my cellar.
2. The wines from Chapoutier’s Bila-Haut project in the Roussillon. Awesome wines that drink much better than their $10-$20 price tag suggests.
3. Whites from Germany, Loire, Alsace and Alto Adige. Too many wines to name, but for the price there is an ocean of great wine in these regions.
