Here’s how to find an inexpensive wine you’re going to want to drink again and again

1. USE AN APP

Download Vivino – its 30 million users make it the largest wine library in the world. The SA lists are great for selecting wine within your budget. Take a photo of any wine label and you’ll instantly get the rating, user reviews and average price

2. DON’T BE TURNED OFF BY SCREW CAPS

They are not an indication of a lesser-quality wine. More winemakers are using screw caps, especially for white and sweet wines, to save cork and costs.

3. TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT

You can’t find your favourite budget wine if you haven’t tried a variety in your range. If you’re treating yourself to a few new bottles once a month, give yourself a price cap but still try something different that’ll excite you.

4. VISIT A WINERY

Pick a local vineyard, book a tasting showcasing a range of what’s on offer and ask your server everything you want to know. When you know what you do and don’t like in your price range, your shopping decisions will be so much easier.

5. SHOP ONLINE

Retailers like Woolies usually offer a discount when you buy a case of wine online. Check in regularly for special promotions – you could just get 10% off six bottles of your favourite vino.
