My personal fave cheap wine is not on the list, so here is my own recommendation: Macaroni Grill's Chianti. The oversized bottle will only set you back $5. I'm known to stock up on this before any event. It may not be the *best* Chianti I've ever had but it's still pretty good and for $5, how could anyone complain. (photo:flickr)
Because I'm feeling extra generous today, I'll share the website of a friend of mine who knows his wine http://www.happywineguy.com/. He's always on the quest to find the best, inexpensive wine and so far, his recommendations have not disappointed.
In case you plan to stock up, I suggest this wine storage unit from Custom Closet Company-
how great is this? I'm thinking my pantry *needs* this.
I'm off to have a much needed glass of vino-S
