This week’s budget wine tip comes from an unexpected source: an opera fanatic friend of my parents, who is also the father-in-law of the VP of one of Napa Valley’s premier wineries. A man of discerning taste! Said friend picked up a bottle of the 2007 Trinchero Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc to use for cooking clams. But then, as he was cooking, he sampled a glass. And guess what? It was magical. Citrusy, with tropical fruit and perfectly refreshing. And it cost $6 at his local wine shop!
