What are the cheapest wine regions around the world from which to buy good quality wines?

Question by James Pescatarian: What are the cheapest wine regions around the world from which to buy good quality wines?
For wine consumers in the USA in 2010, what are the cheapest wine regions around the world from which to buy good quality wines? I’m sure that economies and exchange rates make certain regions a great deal right now, but do not know which ones are the bargains.

Answer by Amy
For me, one of the best values for good-quality wines today is Chile. You can get a really impressive array of wines for $ 10 – $ 15, including finer grape varieties that would be double that amount if they were from another country, such as Cabernet Sauvignon. They also make excellent Sauvignon Blanc and are well known for their Carmenere which is a red wine grape that was once grown in Bordeaux but was pretty much wiped out by a root louse called phyloxera before the 20th century and now is almost exclusively grown in Chile.

My four favorite wines from Chile right now:

2008 Misiones de Rengo Sauvignon Blanc, Valle Central ($ 10)
2008 Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc Reserva, Casablanca Valley ($ 11)
2008 Terra Andina Carmenère, Valle Central ($ 10)
2007 Cousino Macul Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas, Maipo Valley ($ 15)

How much wine should I allow for each person at a tasting event?

Question by Katie B: How much wine should I allow for each person at a tasting event?
I’m planning a wine tasting event as a fundraiser. We’ll be serving 4 or 5 different wines. How much wine should be purchased?

Since it’s a fundraiser, we don’t want to lose money by ending up with unopened wine.

Please give quantities such as 1 bottle of each wine for every 5 people, 10 people, etc.

Best answer:

Answer by Chris C
I would do a half a bottle per person. People will probably want to drink and you don’t want to run out.

How is red wine better than concord grapes for Type 2 diabetics?

Question by Gene S: How is red wine better than concord grapes for Type 2 diabetics?
Red wine has beneficial flavonoids, but isn’t it derived from concord grapes? How does one get the benefits of the wine without drinking wine?

Best answer:

Answer by Jessica B
Drink concord grape juice, but actually alcohol in moderation is good for you. Like as in one glass a day, not any more than that. Grape juice has almost as much antioxidants as wine, 100% pomegranite juice is also another source of non alcoholic antioxidant drinks.
