Dear Wine Lover,
I am often asked if expensive wines are better. And I always answer "…better expensive wines are better." Meaning, the expense is not the criteria, it is the wine.
And there are times when an occasion calls for elevating the character of the wine…not because of the expense, but because of the value we put on the occasion. So for those occasions, I have put together 3 different 4-packs of the fine wines I would serve.
These are the wines that, when the occasion arrives, you proudly retreat to the cellar (cooler, pantry...or wherever you store your wines) and reveal a special bottle.
