The Best Affordable Wines That Will Provide The Most Bang For Your Buck

When you look at buying wine, you want to make sure that you get the best quality for your budget. Now, you may have a smaller budget – but that does not mean you are out of luck. There are many cheap wines that can fill a Miele wine cabinet or one from Bodega.

If your wine cabinet or cellar is thirsting for affordable wines that will please not only your palette but anyone visiting, then all you need to do is spend a little extra time in those aisles to find these recommendations.

Red Wines

A good red wine has a full body with more complex flavours. A good pairing with red meat and creamy sauces, this wine is an important addition to your collection. While the cheaper the red wine, the less complicated the flavouring, you can still get a full-bodied red for an affordable price.

Barista Pinotage 2021

This Pinotage is a combination between aq Pinot Noir and Cinsault. With a strong blend of mulberry, plum, and Maraschino cherries, you will enjoy the smoothness as the flavours coat your tongue.

Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

This Columbian blend has been commended for many years for its flavouring and aroma. A mixture of dark fruits, dark chocolate, and currant will leave you satisfied. A Cabernet Sauvignon is more complex in taste, and this is a good one for a budget buy.

Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz

This Shiraz is a lighter red wine while maintaining the layered flavouring of dark fruit, chocolate, and oak, with hints of delectable spices. This wine is a crowd-pleaser and will go down well at any function or even at the end of a long week.

White Wines

In general white wines are more budget-friendly than red wines because they need less time to age. This means you can get really good white wines for a great price.

Bogle Chardonnay 2021

A light and crisp Chardonnay with green apple and pear flavourings. The silky texture of this wine will complement many meals and salads.

Giesen Sauvignon Blanc

Bottled in the Marlborough region, one of the trusted lesser-known regions, this wine is a winner. With crisp flavouring of tropical fruits and citrus bursting on your tastebuds, this is a great wine to relax with.

Folonari Pinot Grigio 2021

The Folonari family vineyard prides itself on producing good quality wine, and this Pinot Grigio does not disappoint. A refreshing taste of crisp green apples leaves you ready to tackle the next day.

Rosè And Sparkling Wines

These blends are drinker-friendly and pair with most foods thanks to the bubbles and delicate flavours.

Dibon Cava Reserve Brut

A Spanish sparkling wine that is similar to the French Champagne, this Cava has a citrus flavouring with aromas of toasted brioche. Dry in taste. This sparkling wine is one to enjoy with a toast.

Notorious Wines Pink Grenach Rosè

This wine will take you away to summer days when there are no cares. A mixture of strawberries, honey, and orange blossoms, will dazzle you. 

Cote Des Roses Rosè 2021

This rosè wine lives up to its Southern France origin. An enjoyable blend of grapefruit, red currant, and roses gives this wine a soft and silky finish. A truly enjoyable beverage.


Being budget-bound does not mean you will be without quality wines. There are many labels and blends that are tantalising and within an affordable price range. Happy hunting!
