I live about an hour away from Temecula, Southern California's very own wine country. When I get the chance, wine tasting is one of my favorite activities! If you ever have the opportunity to go to a winery and taste different wines, I would highly recommend it. It's so so much fun! My boyfriend and I have been twice and both times (once last February and once the April before that) it was just amazing scenery and a great way to explore wine when you're a beginner. For about $15, you get 5 tastes depending on the winery.
However, expensive wine isn't always the best! There are plenty of "cheap" wines that I prefer over some of the expensive wines I've had at the wineries. I personally like reds and know nothing about white wines. Absolutely nothing! I am by no means a wine snob nor a wine expert. With that said, I will recommend some tasty wines that are worth the buy if you're slightly clueless. That was me not too long ago!! These are all really smooth and you can gulp them down! Perfect if you're attending a dinner at a friends house and want to bring something to show your appreciation.
