Hello wine liking person! Welcome to Reds (For the Rest of Us)!

I'd like to take a moment to just tell you a little bit about this blog, myself, and my love of red wines.

My goal is to introduce you the reader to quality red wines that won't murder your wallet. This blog was an idea I have been mentally juggling for the past few months. You can go on the Internet, or visit any wine shop, and hear about $30, $50... $100 wines. Are they fantastic wines? Of course they are, if you can afford them. The rest of us can't. We look for that bargain brand on the bottom shelf. And we all know it - most bargain wines suck. But I am going to share a secret... there are some diamonds in the rough out there. Here, you will find the best of the budget - and if I have to be so unlucky, the worst as well.

I'm not a wine connoisseur. In fact, I've only discovered my love of wines in the past few years. I've never read a book on wines. I've never taken a class in wine tasting. I'm new at this - so bear with me. While I am no professional, I am passionate and excited about red wines that are pleasing to the pocketbook as well as the palate.

Stay tuned! The first review is coming soon!


  1. What a great concept for a blog! My guy once came home with a bottle of $8.99 wine for me, and my reaction was "dang, baby - you didn't have to splurge on the good stuff!" I look forward to reading your reviews :)

  2. Thanks Niki! (wow my first fan lol...)

    Hope you enjoy reading and tasting!
