IT’S A COM­MON WINE QUANDARY. Maybe you know a $10 wine you like. But then you need a $30 wine for a din­ner or a gift, or you need one that’s truly high-end: $80, $100, even more. But with thou­sands of wines out there, how do you know what’s good?

One an­swer: Keep it in the fam­ily. In the wine world, there are fam­ily-owned winer­ies (or groups) that ap­ply re­lent­less at­ten­tion to qual­ity at ev­ery price level. Per­haps that’s driven by gen­er­a­tions of win­ery-own­ing par­ents telling their chil­dren things like, “If you de­stroy our win­ery’s rep­u­ta­tion, I shall come back to haunt you for­ever!” Or per­haps not. Re­gard­less, it’s good for wine buy­ers. Here are seven to seek out.
