With the wide array of wine and the huge spectrum of prices that exist, finding a good wine for a reasonable price can be difficult. With the wine aisle offering so many different brands, styles, and price ranges it is easy to feel a little over-whelmed. Thankfully, Wine Enthusiast Magazine has recently released their list of the top 100 best buys for wine when it comes to value and taste. The whole idea behind this list is to help people find that great bottle of wine for around $20.
