wine recommendation to go with Fusion Taco (less than $15 / bottle)
I am hosting a dinner party of 40 people and will get fusion tacos as our main entree. (mainly beef, bulgogi/kalbi taco, also some might have chicken/pork taco).
This is my first time hosting such a big party and inviting my boss and mostly colleagues, so is it about right to assume that every 2.5~3 person would consume one bottle? (we will also have some beer and non alcoholic drink)
My budget for the wine is about $500.
What would you recommend for < $15 / bottle of wine to go with fusion taco?
It's safe to assume 3/4 to 1 bottle per person. People won't drink that much, but it's safer to have more.
The answer really, is to go to a dedicated wine shop that has wine tastings or a wine bar. Ask to sample bottles of wine in your price range. Buy the one that you like the most.
I'm sure others will come along and toss out a lot of names of wines at you.
Looking at Spec's web site I see you can get can still and sparkling rose at a variety of price points. Give people a variety.
If you want, I can look further and make more recommendations.
