If you ask any wine enthusiast they will tell you that they spend a considerable amount of money on fine wines and wine accessories. While there are many affordable wines on the market the costs can still add up, and with the recent economy issues many consumers have sought out ways to save money on their passion.
One of the secrets that some buyers of fine wines do not always know is that many of the top vineyards produce not only their well-known high end products but also second label wines as well. During years when the grape harvest is exceptionally good these wines produced with other labels are just as high quality as their sought out names.
True you could call these generic wines but unlike many generic items these are actually in many cases just as good as the original but only sold under a lesser name. If there is a wine that tickles your fancy but the cost is a little steep do a little research. The chances are there is a second label wine from the vineyard that will taste the same but cost much less. This is a great way to save a little money and learn a little more about the top vineyards.
