Food TV: Three wines under $20 to ring in spring

Wine Portfolio host and Wildfire Steakhouse's Jody Ness has three affordable wine picks that could help you forget this week's snowstorm


This week on Food TV, Jody Ness, owner of Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar and the host if Wine Portfolio, picks three easy-drinking pours under $20 that are perfect for celebrating the end of winter. 

“Great wine doesn’t have to come with a big price tag and the nice thing about these pours is that they’re all affordable enough to try,” he says. 

  • Aveleda Vinho Verde is a citrusy, effervescent wine with a balanced acidity that’s low in alcohol content. This light white wine pairs well with seafood, white meats and salads. It’s crisp, refreshing and with a price point of just $10.05, it’s tough to beat.
  • Cave Spring Dry Rosé VQA is a gem from Ontario. This wine is a lovely salmon pink and tastes of strawberries and cherries. it is light and easy drinking. At $14.95, it pairs well with almost any occasion.
  • Georges Duboeuf Brouilly is a red wine with style. It’s a dry, fruity red with balanced tannins that works well with light dinners or even as a conversation wine. It’s a French classic for just $18.95.
