A Guide to Finding Good and Inexpensive Wine by Dr. Akhil Reddy

Most people prefer getting good wine. However, to many, the cost of buying such wine scares the hell out of them. One thing they don’t know is that they can find good and inexpensive wine if they know how to look. Dr. Akhil Reddy has some advice for you on how to find the best inexpensive wine.

Most French wine is known to have a good taste and is rich in scent. Time is an important aspect of wine. Good wine must be given sufficient time to bring its superb taste. Another factor which determines the taste of wine is the types of grapes used to make it and the mastery of the fermentation process. With a rich culture and taste, French wine has a wide variety of options to choose from. For a budget only 30 dollars or less, one can get very good wine.

According to Dr. Akhil Reddy, there are a number of quality vintages at affordable prices for all. He has compiled a list of good tasting wines just like high profile labels but at lower prices. Dr. Reddy says that one of the ways to find good wine is focusing on regions that are less popular because there’s arbitrariness in wine pricing. Another method of finding good wine is considering grapes varieties that are not accorded the buzz they deserve, such as Chenin blanc and Voisinho. Likewise, one can also choose entry-level wines rather than choosing prominent names. Here are a few of the good but cheap wines:

Chateau d’Aiguilhe
Just for $18, one can get a taste of this refreshing, elegant and vibrant wine. This red wine has a fruity flavor and floral notes. It is well consumed when accompanied with a good meal.

Domaine d’Pellehaut
This chardonnay brand comes with a good price and exceptional class. With some taste of cream and vanilla, you cannot fail to admire its taste. It also has a superb smell due to the stone fruit and grapefruit it is made of.

This savory wine consists of a mixture of Semillon, Sauvignon blanc, and muscadalle. Drinking it gives you that sprightly acidity. It also has honey and marmalade flavors. You can enjoy a bottle of this wonderful wine just for $15.

Other varieties of good wines that are affordable include; Chateau Beaumont, Chateau Mont-Perat, Chateau Capbern, and La Vieille Ferme Rouge among many more French wines.

End Citizens United Fights Battle Against Political Dark Money

As the name implies, the premise of End Citizens United is to put a halt to a Supreme Court decision called Citizens United. The passing of Citizens United aided political corruption on many levels. The ruling prevented any spending caps from being placed on non-profit organizations. The ruling favor of Citizens United provided a way for a plethora of “dark money” to enter the political realm. The Supreme Court’s 2010 decision led to a significant rise of super PACs. Why is “dark money” given such a name? Simply, because you cannot trace where it came from. Those who donate this type of funding are not required to reveal their source. Many Super PACs keep the information about their funding away from the public.

The main focus of the group is the reform of campaign finances via the passing of a constitutional amendment which would overturn the Supreme Court decision of 2010. In order to amend the constitution, two third of the senate and the house must consent. Additionally, three fourths of states must consent to the ratification. The ECU supports candidates that are pro-reform and operates on grassroot funding. The ECU cannot accept donations greater than $5,000 and has an average donation of $12.

The ECU plans to change the current system of campaign finance. In the first 90 days of 2017, the ECU raised $4 million. The group plans on having $35 million raised prior to the 2018 congressional election. In 2016, End Citizens United managed to round up $25 million. Roughly 40% of the 100,000 contributors were new donors according to President Tiffany Muller. The group’s leadership is on the hunt for champions of campaign finance reform for congressional election.

John Wonderlich is the director of the Sunlight Foundation Group. The non-partisan group pushes for political transparency. According to Wonderlich, getting a constitutional amendment passed is a tall order. Since 1992, there have been no passed amendments. Experts in finance regulation believe that even raising $100 million does not necessarily put you on the path of getting an amendment passed. However, End Citizens United does manage to keep the pressure on Congress.
