Didn’t get the summer vacation you hoped? For under $50, our wine picks can help transport you to France, Spain or Italy — and you won’t even have to leave your home. Uncorking a bottle unleashes an adventure around the globe. Geography plays such a vital role in the experience of drinking wine. In an instant, you can be whisked away to the Rhone Valley or Iberian Peninsula. Drinking these wines all represent their geography very well. And they are great additions to a wine cellar! So, here are our best wine picks under $50 (plus a few good pairing ideas): 

France

There are three major regions for red wine are Bordeaux, Burgundy, and the Rhone. Let’s visit with a couple of picks from each of those beautiful and abundant regions.

From Bordeaux: This large wine-producing region sits on the Atlantic Coast of France. 

Red Burgundy: We head to the eastern region of France where the red Burgundies are made from Pinot Noir grapes.

Rhone Valley:  Let’s head to southern France now.

  • Tobias Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
    We have this extraordinary wine available right now with great savings. Pick up a case now and thank us later. Juicy. Medium-bodied. Roast beef or a file mignon work well.


Spain
