Buttery Barrel Chardonnay 2020-$7 Aldi-Buttery But Not Too Buttery Ok, I said I was going to go into why I bought this wine and then got distracted (look a squirrel).

So, my mistakes are a good thing! Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and listen to the podcast for the full review!!!

Heartleaf California Rosé 2020- $6 Adult Rosé That Would Pair With Thanksgiving

11/17/2021
Heartleaf California Rosé 2020- $6 Adult Rosé That Would Pair With Thanksgiving. A $5.99 Trader Joe's Rosé is produced in the same manner as the inexpensive European food wines. In France, Italy, etc., they drink wine that sells for a few euros with each meal. The wine is inexpensive, but the locals love their wine. A bottle of wine that costs more than a home-cooked meal is seen as silly! We think we need to spend a small fortune for a wine worthy of the meal in the US. Well, when...

Hwy 5 Chardonnay 2020- A New $4.99 Aldi Wine $4.99 is way too cheap for a decent wine, right? Well, probably not.

Declassify means to allow the grapes or the resulting juice to be used for less expensive wine. Patricia Green Cellars Estate wines sell for between$40 and...

Violet House Monterey Red Blend 2019-An $8 ALDI Halloween Party Wine

10/20/2021
Violet House Monterey Red Blend 2019-An $8 ALDI Halloween Party Wine The label is a violet, black, and white Mexican Day of the Dead skull; it is very well done. This is a wine that ALDI seems to release every year around Halloween, I do not think there was a 2020 version, but that was a messed up year. Every year is a new label, but the wine in the bottle is interesting and loads of fun to drink. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and listen to the podcast for all the details!
