Today’s show is all about saving money on wine and wine country travel. We’re going to look at how to enjoy your wine lifestyle without having to dip deeply into your savings account. We’ll tackle this subject from two fronts. First, we’ll look at one of the best-kept secrets in the wine industry. We’re talking about Second Label wines. These are wines that are produced by some of the most acclaimed winemakers in the world but bottled under names that differ from their better-known brothers and sisters.
Second label wines may differ in a variety of ways. First they may be produced from grapes that didn’t quite make the cut that separates premium wines from wines that might be a tad less exclusive but delicious all the same. Second label wines may also be made from fruit that is not estate ground. That doesn’t mean that the fruit isn’t high in quality, It just means that it wasn’t grown on property owned by the producer. There are other interesting factoids about second label wines and we’ll talk about them in detail on today’s show.
We’re also going to look at how you can visit wine country and have an extraordinarily good time while staying on a modest budget. There are all kinds of opportunities out there for the taking… You just need to know where to look! We’ll be happy to show you!
