Wine recommendations for the novice drinker

cityhopper | Sep 29, 2009 02:52 PM

I am interesting in a recommendation on wines for a novice drinker. I will probably cook with the wine more than anything and probably enjoy a glass during weekend dinners. My goal is to find something under $10, an offering in a "half bottle" (if this exists) would be great, one good white and one good red.

Strong alcohol taste are a turn off for me so probably starting with something with a lighter taste would be best but I welcome all recommendations for a good drinking/cooking white and red wine for a novice/non-drinker.

As far as accessibility, I have Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Aldi, Kroger, Publix, and beverage stores all within radius of less than 3 miles.
