This $5 Burgundy from the Gallo Family winery was Michael Dresser’s wine pick this week, writing in The Baltimore Sun, which he described as a “proud working-class wine” that “deserves respect”.

He said: “Yes, Gallo Hearty Burgundy. You got a problem with that?

“This iconic wine, which led Gallo’s move away from sweet fortified wines and into the realm of table wine, is celebrating its 50th¬†anniversary. For as long as I can remember it’s been a superb value. In 1972, “Time” put the wine on its cover and called it the best wine value in the United States. Not much has changed. It offers generous fruit, vinified dry, and a soft texture.

“There are nice dollops of blackberry and plum flavour. It’s not complex, but at this price who expects it to be? It’s a proud working-class wine and it deserves respect.”

Price: $5
