Some of the world’s best producers make wines which are 1\/10th the price of the ones which got them famous. Unfortunately, these wines are often the hardest to buy. They’re the ones most of us in the know hoard for ourselves. \nFirst, a producer may have a plot of land which isn’t quite as prestigious as its main vineyard. The grapes don’t get as ripe or they planted some strange varietal there that is experimental. The good news is that the winemaker is still the same so the wine is much more likely to be delicious. It’s like a sample sale.
