You get what you pay for? Not necessarily, according to the newly released book “The Wine Trials 2010: The World’s Bestselling Guide to Inexpensive Wines, With the 150 Winning Wines Under $15 From the Latest Vintages,” by Robin Goldstein and Alexis Herschkowitsch.

The two wine enthusiasts reached their findings - that cheap wines often beat their more expensive counterparts - by enlisting regular American consumers to conduct hundreds of blind brown-bag tastings of cheap and expensive wines.

In some cases, a wine that sells for less than $15 beat out its $150 counterpart.

In other words, pay less, get more - or at least better.
