Roll out the barrels â?¦

That small inconvenience known as a crappy economy has made this a good time for great buys on some superb wines.

Glen Mederos at the Wine Warehouse (959 W. Fairbanks, Winter Park; 407-647-4744) points to a bottle of Falesco Vitiano as a stand-out selection. Equal parts Merlot, Cabernet and Sangiovese, this deep-red Italian was rated a "Top Value" by Wine Spectator last year; this year it's just as good and selling for $8.99.

White-wine lovers should head for the Schloss Vollrads Kabinett, one of the new, drier German Rieslings from the producer of some of the greatest wines of the past 30 years. Smooth and not too sweet, with a slight aroma of tangerines, a bottle will set you back $12.99.

Buy to impress with a $29.99 Pratesi Carmignano, a voluptuous, "sexy" red wine that you'll end up keeping for yourself.
