Be a smart and savvy shopper! The price of wine is influenced by the economic law of markets, just like all other consumer goods. It also has to withstand Mother Nature’s temporal changes in weather and climate. What you end up with are fluctuations in price and quality between wine producing regions.

You are invited to a tasting during which we will explore a few of those regions that offer quality wines at hard to beat prices. You will also walk away with a better understanding of your personal taste, preferences and how to expand this knowledge through proper wine tasting, following the Quini tasting standard.
