    Over the years, the wine director David Gordon has put together a wonderful list of older bottles that are gently priced. In one area, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, I’ve never seen a deeper list.

    You can’t see it on the Web site, but the sommelier, Aviram Turgeman, has put together a beauty that offers an opportunity to explore some great older wines at less than they may cost elsewhere.

    Eleven Madison’s list offers tremendous range at surprisingly reasonable prices. The choice of producers is impeccable, from rising stars like Julian Haart and A. J. Adam to established leaders like Willi Schaefer, Von Schubert and Dönnhoff.

    With its superb selection of tapas, Casa Mono is a destination for exploring sherry, especially with the specialty bottles issued by Equipo Navazos.

    If you don’t feel up to the challenge of Coteaux-du-Vendômois, where some delightfully peppery pineau d’Aunis is made, you can always settle for Sancerre, Chinon, Muscadet or Beaujolais.

    Frannys became a beloved Brooklyn institution by serving terrific food & wine, never pandering. That goes especially for the wine list, a fountain of perhaps unfamiliar names from throughout Italy, yet all well chosen. You can drink well for $40 to $60.

    You’ll find terrific and modestly priced whites from Calabria and Sicily, Campania and Basilicata, along with more substantial whites from Friuli-Venezia Giulia, many easier on the wallet, like the Zidarich Vitovska 2011 for $55.

    France and Germany are particular strengths, though California is well represented. I love the deep Loire Valley selection.

    I cant think of any restaurant that dives as deeply into Burgundy, with as many rare bottles from older vintages, courtesy of the Daniel Boulud corporate wine director, Daniel Johnnes, who has been a Burgundy ambassador and educator for almost 30 years.

    The United States is well represented, from Finger Lakes rieslings to bottles of trophy chardonnays from California. The American sections are beautifully chosen. Other strengths include the Loire Valley, the the Jura, Burgundy and the rest of France.

    Wine director Juliette Pope maintains and augments what has long been one of New York’s best lists. You want sparkling wine, but not at Champagne prices? How about the excellent Crémant de Jura from Montbourgeau for $50?
