Top Regions for Great Buys in 2008

Last week, we announced our Top 100 Best Buys of 2008, these represent quality wines with a suggested retail price no more than $15. These wines offer outstanding value and are a great springboard for building an everyday wine collection. Like we did with the Enthusiast 100, I analyzed the list only this time to determine the best wine-producing regions for value. Refer to this list when you’re next in a wine shop, looking for the most bang for your buck:

  • Countries with the most Best Buy wines in the Top 100 are the U.S (28), Chile (15), Australia (10), Spain (10) and Portugal (9)
  • At the lowest end of the price range, for just $8, you find wines rated 87+ from California, Central Valley (Chile), Columbia Valley (Washington), Portugal and Spain.
  • Other hot regions to look for: Mendoza (Argentina), Provence (France), Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma, California), and Stellenbosch (South Africa)
  •  The list crosses a wide spectrum of wine styles including everything from Pinotage to Albarino to Bordeaux and the Douro, showing that you can find great wines of every style, at low price points. Why spend a lot for great wine?

What are some of your favorite great buys this year? Where are you seeing the most value?
