Best Bets - The bigger the better
I popped into Metro Liquor to chat with Marcia and Haley about this week's Best Bet, and a couple of things struck me about our pick. The bottle is nearly as BIG as Marcia...its the JUMBO 1.5L size...meaning, its TWO conventional bottles in ONE for $15.80...that's like $8 a bottle!
I've long told you how affordable Portuguese wine can be, as it often offers an exceptional QPR(Quality To Price Ratio). The Vila Regia is no exception! Its a well balanced mid-weight red blend with black cherry, strawberry jam and vanilla notes. It features some of the same varietals used in Port production like Tinto Roriz(you know that as Tempranillo), which makes sense, as the Duoro River Valley is one of the oldest wine regions in the world, and was made famous thanks to the production of Port.
The single size bottle sells for quite a bit more than $8 at the liquor store, so not only will you save, the ONLY place you can get this JUMBO bottle is at Metro!
