Wine lovers are always on the hunt for good, cheap bottles. Price matters, but so does the presentation factor. Years of making best buy suggestions has proven people want the wines they serve to be recognizable as quality bottles. Conventional grape varieties from established wine regions are more desirable than unusual examples from unexpected regions — no matter how good that unique selection is or how much people will enjoy it. But there’s something to be said for serving what you want to share with family and friends. It’s your house and your hospitality after all.
