Here, wine experts reveal their favorite bottles costing less than $17. Many of the selections are lesser known but absolutely worth the search.

Who: Adam Morey, manager and buyer, Empire Wines, Albany, NY

What: 2011 Más Que Vinos Ercavio Roble

Why: “This little Spanish gem is my personal go-to,” says Morey. The dark-fruited wine is made from 100 percent Cencibel (the local name for Tempranillo in La Mancha). “The purity of fruit here is astonishing for a wine that retails for just $10.95 per bottle. It’s one of the most exciting values I have tasted in quite some time.”

Kristin Donnelly is a former Food & Wine editor and cofounder of Stewart & Claire, an all-natural line of lip balms made in Brooklyn.
