Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with a partner or your closest friends, there's a pretty good chance it will involve at least a glass or two of wine.
(And, since V-Day will fall on a Tuesday, vino is a lot more suitable than, say, tequila shots before your karaoke rendition of "Single Ladies.")
Of course, we aren't here to tell you to spend money, but we are here to help you save on things you intend to buy anyway.
To find cheap wines that taste expensive, we talked to Leslie Sbrocco, wine connoisseur, Emmy award-winning television host and founder of Thirsty Girl, a community of women who love eating, drinking and traveling well.
If you'd rather buy wine in person than order online, Sbrocco recommends Costco, which actually has a wide selection of wine at great prices. And to buy at a discount, she suggests buying wines you like by the case—most stores will give a discount of up to 10% if you do.
Here are more ways to save money on wine, whatever your taste.
