November 15, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Great wine at an economical price is the focus of The Wine Trials 2011 by Robin Goldstein, Alexis Herschkowitsch and Tyce Walters. The book offers great ideas for this holiday season. For example, dispel the myth that you have to purchase a sparkler from Champagne to enjoy a top-flight bubbly. J.P. Chenet is not only the world’s best-selling French wine brand, but produces a fantastic sparkler that costs 25% or less than most of its higher rent cousins from Champagne. At only $12 a bottle, J.P. Chenet Brut was chosen by The Wine Trials as their sparkling wine of the year. www.jpchenet.com

There are also bargains to be had for white and red wines. The best bargain may be the Foxhorn Chardonnay. Selected as a finalist in the heavy white category, Foxhorn’s modest price of $6 makes it the most economical wine to be selected as one of the Best of the Wine Trials.

Among the top red wines, Concannon Vineyard’s 2007 Conservancy Petite Sirah is a unique selection. Made from grapes located in California’s Livermore Valley, Concannon places its vineyards in a permanent land trust, protecting them from encroaching urban development. While this is the initial commercial release of Concannon’s Conservancy tier, they are certainly no stranger to the varietal. In fact, Concannon was the first winery ever to bottle Petite Sirah as a varietal back in 1964. www.concannonvineyard.com.

These wines, as well as many other great selections, are highlighted in The Wine Trials. These wines prove once again that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to enjoy a great bottle of wine!
