10 Great Wines Under P1,000

Bottles that won't break the bank


(SPOT.ph) The holidays are over and the credit card statement for last year’s revelry is in the mail. But the parsimonious New Year doesn’t mean that having good wine as often as possible, a habit that’s annoyingly easy to pick up, has to end. Just as that 25,000-peso bottle could well turn out to be overpriced plonk, there are some amazing bargains to be had for under P1,000.
