Cheers: 10 Brands Of Red Wine Under $20

You think  shopping for a nice red wine is easy? Nope it is not.. well according to me it isn’t! Decisions, decisions, walking down an aisle in your favorite liquor store and you see like hundreds of brands.. ok maybe not hundreds but a whole lot. It’s basically impossible to know which ones are worth your time just by looking at them. You can usually guess that an expensive bottle will be at least kind of good, but not everyone has the means to drop a lot of dough every time they want a sip of a nice red.
