With the holidays approaching, there are going to start being a lot of holiday parties and large family gatherings.  A lot of wine is going to be needed for these and you need to find good value wines that still taste great.  So many people just go to the big-name California producers that are cheap.  This is fine if you are just looking to save money and not worried about taste, but there are so many better options out there.

If you want to find both value and quality for wine, your best bet is to look at countries that are lesser known and underappreciated.  One of those countries is Argentina.  The wines coming from Argentina are extremely high quality.  Many of the high-end wines rival those from California and even lots of Europe.  But the majority of the wine coming from Argentina is very inexpensive and offers an amazing value.  

The Sur de los Andes Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017 is an excellent example of an amazing wine at an amazing price.  Coming in at under $15, this is the perfect wine for large gatherings because it does not break the bank, yet is a high-quality red.  In my opinion, it will beat just about any value red from California around the same price.  It is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.  Malbec is such a popular grape right now and Cabernet obviously the most popular red grape in the world.  So, it's the perfect combination to please everyone.

Not only is this wine under $15, but it also has a 92-point score from Wine Enthusiast!  "Blackberry aromas come with welcome notes of chocolaty oak and graphite to create a nose of plenty. A lush, full-bodied palate brings huge flavors of blackberry and cassis that show no rough edges are steady on the finish."

So, if you are getting ready for holiday parties or large family gatherings.  Instead of going right to the big-name advertised California wines, take a look at the lesser-known regions around the world.  Not only will your pocketbook enjoy it, but your palate will also!
