For those times when your money is best spent on things other than wine, here are four tasty options that go easy on the wallet.

GREAT VALUE

Protos Verdejo 2015

Two stars.

Rueda, Spain, $13

Crisp and refreshing with flavors of nectarines and almonds, this delightful white wine is an ideal starter for your evening. It will also pair well with lighter dishes or salads. Alcohol by volume: 13 percent.

GREAT VALUE

Espirito do Coa Tinto 2013

One and a half stars.

Beira Interior, Portugal, $10

The Espirito do Coa wines, both red and white, illustrate why Portugal is the source of some of the world’s best wine values today. This blend of tempranillo and mencia is an ideal red for casual dinners: burgers off the grill, Peruvian chicken takeout or pizza. ABV: 13 percent.

GREAT VALUE

Espirito do Coa Branco 2015

One and a half stars.

Beira Interior, Portugal, $10

Another tasty, refreshing white wine, this will help you cross two more grapes off your list: It’s a blend of Síria and Fonte Cal. More important, it’s delicious, both by itself and with simple dinners. ABV: 12.5 percent.

GREAT VALUE

Domaine de l’Hemoniere Sauvignon 2015

One and a half stars.

Touraine, France, $12

This is good, basic sauvignon blanc, showing some mineral character along with slightly grassy flavors and grapefruit. ABV: 13 percent.
