A challenge to the amateur (or pro) sommelier or caterer...
I need to offer red & white wine, cheese, and perhaps other light snacks at a light reception soon - nothing elaborate, believe me.
Still, if I'm buying a few cases, it might as well be good.
Any tips about the best VALUE wines at Trader Joes, Costco, or other easy stops in LA right now? (Please, no tips about what was available last fall!)
Also, cheese, crackers and other semi-classy snacks - nothing to cook or heat, please.
Extra bonus for VALUE champagne tip!
Thanks in advance!
