Would you like a quick suggestion for a good wine to drink tonight (or this weekend) that wonâ€™t break your budget and is widely available? Many of our readers have said this is something they would like, so here is this weekâ€™s selection, the 2008 FishEye Pinot Grigio from California.
Our selection criteria include:
- A very good Quality rating of >=3.5 stars (out of 5)
- A price tag of <=$15
- Must be widely available
Each year since its 2005 launch, FishEye Winery has been named a Rising Star with Adamâ€™s Beverage Dynamics and also a HOT BRAND by Market Watch. We were first introduced to FishEye during the Live Wine Blogging segment of last summerâ€™s Wine Bloggers Conference. I was pleasantly surprised by this FishEye Pinot Grigio. It is very crisp and refreshing.
â€œFishEye is the type of wine that works well for a summer barbecue or as an everyday wine for the house. Itâ€™s a fun, quality wine that delivers intense flavor at a great price, making it an excellent choice for the everyday or casual wine drinker.â€ â€“Winemaker Jim McDonald
