Introduction
The Frugal Tasters wine blog has built a community of budget-minded wine lovers. We firmly believe that being a wine lover shouldn’t come at a high cost. We pride ourselves on being frugal and enjoy seeking out the most fun, tasty, unique bottles of wine at a great price. We may not be wine connoisseurs but we do know when we taste something we like. We love wine…and who says good wine and inexpensive wine can’t be one in the same?
