By Kori ~ February 18th, 2010.

Would you like a quick suggestion for a good wine to drink tonight (or this weekend) that won’t break your budget and is widely available? Many of our readers have said this is something they would like, so here is this week’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 Adam’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 summer’s Wine Bloggers Conference. I was pleasantly surprised by this FishEye Pinot Grigio. It is very crisp and refreshing.

“FishEye is the type of wine that works well for a summer barbecue or as an everyday wine for the house. It’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.” –Winemaker Jim McDonald

Quality: 3.5 stars (out of 5)
QPR: 5 bangs for your buck (out of 5)
Where to buy: Winery, $7; Available elsewhere, $5 to $9
