For super wines at every price, look to these seven great wine families.
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.
