An easy way to get your hands on cheap wine is to take a trip to wine country, and you’re going to want to do it with a little bit of luck.
Wine travel is about the perfect blend of opportunity, travel and the ability to grab a few cheap bottles, says Mark Pomeroy, the founder and CEO of Wine Country Australia.
He explains the best places to visit to get a good idea of the region’s local flavours.
“It’s really about the mix of flavours, and there are so many different countries there, so you have to be able to find a place that is not too far away,” he says.
“If you’re not looking for the most expensive wines, then you’ve got to be looking for a place where there is a good mix of the cheaper, the middle and the more expensive.”
If you’re in the middle, you’re also in for a treat.
Wine Country, which operates out of Brisbane’s CBD, has a good reputation for getting great wines from around the world.
Its wines range from the more traditional to the more adventurous, with some that are as close to home as possible.
Pomeroys wines are also the best in the state, with wines that are well-known, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio.
But what’s even better about Wine Country is its “wine tasting” program.
There are a few different categories that you can choose from: the premium wines that aren’t as well-established, the more niche wines that don’t have a lot of wine to speak of.

This blend of cabeza, a spicy wine, is the best wine for the price.
It comes from the coastal region of Cabeñas, which makes it a great wine for people looking to spend a bit more money, says Pomer.
“The wines are so good they’re not too expensive, and the wine is very well-balanced.”
But if you’re looking to go all in and pick out a bottle of wine that’s really worth the money, you might want to look at the more popular wines from other regions, like Pinot Blanc, Cabro, Pinottoes or Cabo Cerveceras.
“Pompey, Cabogliato, Chardonnay, Sangiovese and Pisco are all very expensive,” says Pymoy.
“But if you want a wine that suits your budget, it’s really a great option.”
