J.P. Chenet Blanc de Blancs Brut (France, $12)

Light White
Bogle Sauvignon Blanc (California, $9)

Heavy White
Yalumba Unwooded Chardonnay (Australia, $10)

Lâl Rosé (Turkey, $10)

Light Red
Monte Antico (Italy, $12)

Heavy Red
Doña Paula Los Cardos Malbec (Argentina, $12)

Dr. L Riesling (Germany, $12)

Wine Trend: Refill ’er Up
Within a year, Americans could be taking refillable wine bottles back to the store and topping them off with Chardonnay. In France, where table wine and gasoline are roughly the same price per gallon, a wine bottle is refilled an average of eight times. Idaho’s Pend d’Oreille Winery gives refillers a 50 percent discount.
