The two wines were the pictured Piper Sonoma Blanc de Blanc from California and the Gruet Blanc de Noir from New Mexico. Both were on Christmas special for $15 and $17 respectively. They were light and fresh and pleasing. The Piper Sonoma was more crisp while the Gruet, with it's pinot noir shining through, had a bit more fruit and body. The Piper will be the New Year's Day sipper here.
So I have progressed to liking cheaper wine. For the pocketbook that is a good thing, but I'm still waiting for full recovery to get back to drinking better wine.
