FEATURE: 7 Everyday Wines To Try A$AP

"I got the love birds chirpin' at the window
But I don't need love no more
I'll be fine, sipping wine, taking time slow"
-A$AP Rocky


In 2015, A$AP Rocky released his dope-for-life track, "Everyday" featuring Miguel and Rod Stewart. The song opens with Rod Stewart's famous line: "Everyday I spend my time / Drinking wine, feeling fine / Waiting here to find the sign / That I can understand / Yes I am" and it was those words reimagined (thx to A$AP) that created this. So the wait is over, we found a sign -- that we can understand and share with our readers. We let it aerate -- and know it's goood. 


While hip hop is notorious for mentions of luxe champagne brands and expensive brown liquor, everyday wines rarely get name-dropped. Well thanks to A$AP, he got us the closest to everyday wines. We are ready to name drop 7 that we KNOW are legit (one for everyday of the week - ALL under $25/bottle). Cheers to that.
