30 Under $30 – 5-star rated wines you can buy


It's been a year since New Zealand closed its border to visitors, many of us had to adjust to situations with work and lifestyle choice, but, let's face it, once you've developed a palate for great wines, you can never settle for less. So, I'm here to help.

I've selected 30 5-star rated wines you can buy under $30 to get you through your everyday need and for your cellar. There's a good range of choices, I hope you will find something you like and try something new.
