Value Brands of the Year
“Commit these names to memory and you’ll never be at a loss for a well-priced bottle of wine. These are the brands that regularly turn out excellent wines for $18 or less, the ones that you can trust when every dollar counts. To find them, we looked at all the 12,000-some wines we tasted over the past year and selected out the brands with the most high-scoring wines in this price range.
“Pierre Sparr makes an array of Alsace whites that will rise to the occasion. They’ve been growing vines in Sigolsheim for 300 years, and work with a community of growers that provides fruit from 370 acres for the brand.”
