With the holidays coming up, many of us will be traveling home, and bringing wine to the family dinner will most likely require a run to the supermarket. From personal experience, finding a decent wine at a big grocery chain or a local corner store can be tough, especially if you don’t want to spend more than $30. So it’s nice to know of a big-name wine to look for that won’t be horrendous when you get it home. Gallo Family Vineyards recently released its Twin Valley Provincia di Pavia Pinot Noir. It’s a light-bodied and relatively well-balanced wine that goes nicely with a number of foods, from creamy dips to roast poultry. So if your options are slim, this is a wine you can rely on—plus, it’s cheap!
