    Really safe list of large generally corporate type wines found on the 50 yard line, notable exceptions include D.R. Stephens. There are so many exceptional wines being made off the mainstrip that are affordable and beautifully made. I really encourage people to venture off the grid you may be surprised what you find. See Anamoly, Chase Cellars, Edge Hill.
