By Imani Brammer If you're looking for the perfect date wine or a bottle to celebrate a special occasion, take note that the higher priced ones aren't always the best. For a long time, it's been a common misconception that the greatest wines are the most expensive. But, thanks to Elyse Luray, author of Great Wines Under $20, we now know better.
