Just so you know who we are, we don't pretend to do everything. Even if we sometimes love The Beatles, we don't have strawberry wine, we can't dance the dutty wine, and we don't sell beer and liquor, or even wine. But we do wine reviews, look for and find bargains, try our hand at wine humor, and much, much more. Our Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2011 is in the $15 section on the left. And an Italian Vino Novello 2011 is in the $10 section.Our latest section is Wine Appellations, which will help you read the labels and determine if this bottle is a wine that you want. We have started with the United States and France.
Don't waste your time and money buying inexpensive wine blindly. Read our $10 and our $15 wine reviews.

This is not our review process. If you are perplexed about which wine to buy you should take a look at our wine reviews, taken from our own wine articles. Perhaps you just don't feel like wading through pages of prose to find out lots and lots about the given region. You'd really like to know about the wine and its price range.We have taken many of our wine articles and boiled them down to short and sweet (but not necessarily positive) reviews. We're independent, we purchase all of of wines the same way that most of you do, paying the full price at the local wine store, or a wine-specialty store. That way you get our unbiased review, whether in capsule form or in a longer wine article.
Wine is a very, very serious subject for far too many people. Lighten up. Wine is meant to be enjoyed and should bring a smile to your lips. We start with a top-ten spoof of problems in the wine scene. Among the subjects we mock out are its cost, wine cellars, opening bottles, insomnia, wine and food pairing, colors, tastes, and smells, wine snobs, and home brew. We hope you will enjoy our humor with friends and loved ones, accompanied by fine wine and food.
