15 Northwest wines for $15 or less
We’re thinking about summer, and that means outdoor living in the Pacific Northwest. For barbecues and picnics, you don’t necessarily want to bring out the big guns in Northwest wine, so now is a great time to load up on inexpensive bottles for easy enjoyment.
Fortunately, several Pacific Northwest wineries have done a good job of keeping prices at reasonable levels, so tracking down our definition of “Best Buys” ($15 or less) is not a difficult task.
The prices listed here are the full retail you might pay at the winery. However, many of these Northwest wines are available only at retailers such as grocery stores, and you can expect to pay a dollar or more less per bottle than what is listed here.
And if you buy by the case (mixed or all the same wine), many retailers will offer additional discounts of 10 to 15 percent.
On the following pages, we have provided 15 Northwest wines for $15 or less that we have tasted in recent weeks.
