Ciao! These well-priced wines from Portugal, Italy and Greece may be unfamiliar to you now but give 'em a sec to ascertain the local vibes and you'll find that they fit right in!

Baga, Bairrada, Portual
The Nat’COOL wines from fifth-generation winery Niepoort in the Douro are all about light, low ABV wines for easy times and easier drinking. Dirk Niepoort, a natural wine superstar specializing in dry still wines and Port, converted to biodynamics in 2012 and employs local varieties and low-intervention techniques to great international fanfare. Here, the humble Baga drinks like juicy & fresh Pinot Noir — all wild berries and a touch of spice and florality in a featherweight body with a touch of tannin. Pull on your comfiest sweatpants ‘cause this unpretentious beauty is here for the long haul. Bonus sneaky glass in 1L = more to discover.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Abruzzo, Italy
Cristina Tiberio is a former chemist who trained in Champagne, Chablis and the Mosel before taking the helm of her family’s winery in Abruzzo, Italy. This is one of her many elegant and affecting odes to the regional Italian grapes that have defined (and until recently, were neglected in) the region for centuries. The grapes are organically farmed from 50 year old vines and vinified as clean, low-intervention wines that are approachable and food-friendly, something for you but also your Merlot-obsessed uncle! Drinks like Tilda Swinton in I Am Love, silk-lined, pedigreed and impeccable with notes of IKEA lingonberry jam, ripe cherries and blackcurrant cassis on a palazzo, not a villa, darling. As the night (and wine) wanes, Cuban cigars emerge with a hint of raw leather and river earth. Pairs perfectly with meaty proteins, Marcella Hazan’s tomato sauce & someone else doing the cleaning.

Xinomavro, Macedonia, Greece
Family-owned for several generations, this winery previously sold their grapes until recently, when Apostolos Thymiopolos left to study oenology and returned to the winery to make grapes under his own label with a particular emphasis on the powerful Greek grape, Xinomavro. Kinda like Pinot Noir with an extra kick of spice and body, this Xinomavro comes from younger vines than his signature wine, Earth and Sky and spends 8 months in concrete. Medium-bodied with perfumed red fruit and a minty herbal twist, the kind of wine that absolutely no one in the world could have a problem with, like the wine equivalent of finding a twenty dollar bill on the street.
