Cheaper wines please

Dear Editor,

I have enjoyed reading your recently introduced gourmet section and especially the “wine of the week” column. However I do find that the wines are usually out of my price range, for example a few weeks ago the Moon Harvested wine from Herdade dos Grous costs €25 a bottle but more often than not the wines featured are rarely priced lower than €7 or €8. Could we please see some interesting wines priced at €5 or less?

I do try to feature wines in different price ranges but must admit that is is difficult to find interesting wines  priced at 5 euros or less, although some have been featured in my column already. I will endeavor to include more but always keeping in mind that life is too short to drink bad wine.
