Anyone who’s lives in Lagos can attest that selecting the right bottle involves navigating dozens of seemingly similar options. It’s a minefield of varietals, labels, and price tags, which is made all the more daunting when you scarcely know your reds from your whites or you’re on a tight budget. Thankfully, and contrary to popular belief, a great-tasting bottle of wine doesn’t necessarily need to be procured at an eye-watering price.
I am constantly on the lookout for new, delicious wines, but nothing gets me more excited than finding an affordable bottle that tastes way fancier. Here is a list of affordable wines in Lagos.
