The Tastings.

Once a month we’ll be tasting a few different wines from one group, be it varietal, region, vineyard, etc. We’ll write up our thoughts on each – don’t worry, there won’t mention any “slight coriander flavors” – and how much we’d be willing to pay. And, of course, how much we actually did pay.

And that’s it. That’s our simple equation for determining whether or not we like a wine. If the price we’d be willing to pay for it is greater price we actually paid for it, we’d have a winner on our hands! Now…the opposite equation isn’t quite so good.

Really it couldn’t be any simpler. We could be loving a $5 wine or a $40 wine. Just so long as we think the value is greater than the cost. (Ahh, basic economics make life so much easier.) For the sake of simplicity though, we’re going to stick to tasting wines that retail between $10 and $30.

Here’s a list of all the tastings we’ve done so far:
