Here, we reveal wines we love costing less than $17. Occasionally, other experts weigh in.
Salad again for dinner? We don’t blame you. Who wants to cook at the peak of summer? Here are three wines to try that will be as refreshing as your meal.
White Vinho Verde.
It’s actually hard to find bottles of these Portuguese wines for more than $15. While the translation of the name, “green wine,” refers to the fact that you’re supposed to drink them young, I see it as a dead giveaway that these wines—the whites in particular—are stellar with salads. Spritzy and refreshing, they’re like not-sweet-at-all-Sprite for grown-ups, with citrusy flavors that work with the tangiest of vinaigrettes. Try the $7 2013 Fâmega.
