You may wonder whether quality wines can be found that cost less than $10 a bottle. They can indeed. Many well-made wines priced in the single digits offer great taste along with great value.

When buying a wine in this price range, bear in mind that well-made wines have certain characteristics regardless of what they cost.

A well-made wine should offer a balance of the elements from which it is made. For a white wine, it may be its taste and the level of acidity that assures freshness. In red wines, it may be the amount of tannin; too much can leave your mouth dry and exhausted, while too little is much like drinking Kool-Aid.

When considering wines costing less than $10, remember that most are priced based on the cost incurred in their production. Some producers, when bottling $10-and-under wines, substitute less expensive processes to keep the cost down. And some do it better than others.
