If you don’t have much experience with German wines, consider yourself in luck: September is German Wine Month at the 40 Binny’s locations across Illinois. Highlights include month long German wine sales and tastings at individual stores. Learn about German wine styles, how to read German wine labels, and wine regions of Germany.
One thing that you certainly must consider is how affordable German wines can be. I picked up six bottles of German wines for sale at Binny’s for under $100.00. That included tax and was before special September pricing was in effect. You may be thinking, “Well sure, anyone can buy six crappy wines for under $100,” but, these are good wines!
I chose a variety of different styles of German wines for sale at Binny’s. Some of them I had tried before, and some I hadn’t.
Look, I’m only WSET Level 2 certified, work in an office 40+ hours a week, and am the only wine drinker in my house. I’m still a newbie!
