An Insider's guide to restaurants, wine, spirits and culinary travel

the affordable wine guide to california and the pacific northwest

Ninety percent of the wine consumed in the U.S. sells for $15 or less. Two-thirds of it is purchased in convenience stores, drug stores, warehouse retailers such as Costco, and supermarkets (in states where this is legal).

Most of this wine is never reviewed, except for the annual “Best Buy” features in wine magazines. Yet this is what most of us drink every day (whether or not we admit it).

Mark Spivak’s Affordable Wine Guide to California and the Pacific Northwest offers a clear-cut guide to the real bargains on the shelf. It can be downloaded to your smart phone and scrolled for easy access while shopping. It profiles the good, the bad and the ugly in the under-$15 category, and spotlights some remarkable bargains. Mark uses a simple rating system, and provides a glossary of wine terms for the uninitiated beginner.
