Sampling Bronco Company Wines

Reviews of Affordable Wines by a Novice Sipper


As a novice wine taster, I appreciate the simplicity of wine. Quality, for me, comes from simple flavor and smell, but I have always wanted to learn about the more intricate qualities of wine. To start my education, I selected a handful of bottles from the Bronco Wine Company, and they turned out to be delicious and affordable wines perfect for any occasion this season.

White Truck 2009 Pinot Grigio: The White Truck initially caught my attention with its citrus and floral notes, accompanied with hints of sweet vanilla. Among my friends, this was one of the favorite wines that we tasted. Its light, crisp taste was refreshing, and I could definitely picture myself drinking this wine on a shaded patio during the spring and summer months. (12.6% alc. / $11.99)

Pink Truck 2010 Pink Wine: I was very excited to taste this wine, from its bright pink color to its attractive packaging and overall look. The Pink Truck has the full package; from its eye-catching color to its crisp, sweet flavor and refreshing finishing notes, this wine is perfect for any outdoor summer occasion. (10.5% alc. / $8.99)

Motos Liberty 2009 Moscato: This wine has a delicious blend of orange and floral notes. I could definitely see this in my glass all summer long, as it has a very refreshing taste and would be especially nice after a hot day. Of the white wines, this was my personal favorite because it was the perfect blend of sweet citrus and pear, and I found myself wanting more after the first few tastes. (10.0% alc. / $11.99)

Montpellier 2011 Pinot Noir: My first impression of the pinot was its strong and unusual earthy smell mixed with a distinct berry aroma. Its alluring red berry color and smooth finish would be perfect as a complement to any savory meal. (12.5% alc. / $9.99)
