So the new year is upon us and it might be a time for some us to do a little budgeting. We  may have stretched ourselves a little bit. But not to worry, no need to put away the wine glass or cut back on a good glass of wine… we’ve got delish budget wines to the rescue!

So for me, we had a lot of folks over at my place during the holidays. 14 to 15 people for dinner for quite a few nights. So I found myself a great deal, that everybody loved… and when I unveiled it and told them the price… their jaws dropped!

My find from Vinas Santa Rita… the Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2011, from the Maipo Valley in Chile… $13.95. We actually stayed at this incredible property at the Casa Real hotel, hundreds of acres of stunning vegetation, hundred year old trees, just beautiful! The winery founded in 1880 produces amazing wines of terrific value!

This Cab a blend of the best Cabernet Sauvignon barrels in the vintage, aged in French and American oak… concentrated rich flavours, hints of spice, of oak and with soft tannins… big juicy berry flavor Go and get yourself a bottle, delish for $13.95 in our market.
