15 Northwest wines for $15 or less
Here in the Pacific Northwest, it costs more to make wine than many other places in the world.
Simply put, the vines don’t like to carry quite so much fruit as, say, California’s Central Valley. Labor can be more expensive than in South America and other regions. And because few wineries make wines in mass quantities (with a few notable exceptions), materials such as glass, cork, labels and equipment can cost more.
Yet we’re still blessed with plenty of wine for $15 or less from throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
Here are 15 examples of delicious wines in that magical price range that we’ve tasted in recent weeks.
