Ahhh, wine! It’s always been wonderful to enjoy a delicious glass of wine at the end of the day but after having Zain and abstaining from alcohol for 9 months, it’s even more of a treat. Recently, we have been having people over more often—who has time to go out with a baby? so I have been working on my wine collection. I am always on the hunt for the most flavorful bottles at a good price point and since it can get so confusing I thought I would test out some and try to compile a list of the best budget wines for y’all. I’m more of a red wine and prosecco girl so I rounded up a few of my favorites and would love to hear yours!
Meiomi Pinot Noir
This is a red I always hear people of all ages say they love! It’s a richer Pinot that has some fruity flavors and is perfect to pair with red meats or a charcuterie plate. It’s a staple for girl’s night around here!
A to Z Pinot Noir
This Pinot Noir is from Oregon and was a recommendation for Jess! I never knew there was so much wine country in Washington and Oregon and it has come to be one of my favorites.
Estancia Pinot Noir
This is a medium bodied red that has a little bit of a cherry flavor. I’m not a huge fan of harsh red’s and this one is soft enough for me to enjoy!
My favorite prosecco and it’s such a steal! It’s not too sweet and is so fresh and crisp!
Dark Horse Rosé
What’s summer without rosé? This one is under $10 and is my favorite. It’s not too sweet or fruity making it easy to enjoy more than one glass.
The only issue I have with wine and champagne is that I can never finish a bottle and always wasting it! I know, who has that problem? Well, I’ve never been able to drink a ton and now that I’ve had Zain I don’t usually have more than a glass.
Enter, zzysh® It’s an easy and affordable wine and champagne preservation system that I recently tested out and have become obsessed with. It actually kept the smell and taste of my bottles and has made offering different bottles to our guests so much easier! The unique technology replaces the air in the wine bottle or pressurizes it, if it’s a sparkling wine. This with a highly pure protective atmosphere consisting of argon for wine or a mixture of argon and carbon dioxide for a sparkling wine. In combination with the stopper, this works to protect the wine and sparkling wine from oxidation, ensuring flavor, taste, fizz and color are all retained.
Using the system is super simple too! You just close the bottle with the zzysh® seal instead of it’s cork and place the hand-piece down for 3-4 seconds till it seals the bottle. You’ll hear a small fizz that let’s you know the pressure is sealed and can then store it till the next time you’re ready to enjoy it.
It works by putting the bottle under atmospheric pressure and then sealing it with a protective film. The hand-pieces come equipped with cartridges that are filled with pure argon gas and you can always replace those whenever needed without having to purchase a new system.
