Good, Cheap Summer Wine Find
We recently tried Espiral Vinho Verde and really enjoyed it. This wine occupies rare territory in the house; both my wife and I liked it (I like dry wine, she likes sweetier, fruitier wine). Finding a wine we both like is unusual; finding something cheap we both like is cause for celebration and blogging.
The best way I can describe the wine is like biting in to a tart apple. It's got a little bit of bubbly action going on, and really hits the spot on a hot day when served ice cold.
For those who like CAPS blogs to have an investing/finance angle... This stuff is a whopping $4 a bottle at Trader Joe's. Maybe it's not the best Vihno Verde on the planet (or maybe it is), but four bucks! Take the money you save from not buying expensive wine and invest it. Finance angle covered.
