Brad and I LOVE wine but we don’t like paying a lot of money for good wine. We will splurge on an expensive bottle from the grocery store ($20.00) every once in awhile but most of the time we stay in the $10.00 or less range.
I am a huge believer that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a bottle of wine for it to be good. Brad bought us a $50.00 (VERY RARE TO SPEND THAT MUCH) bottle of Chardonnay from the grocery store this year and it was just ok. My ten dollar bottles were actually much better.
One of my favorite things to do with my husband is to cook a new recipe together and drink a glass of wine that pairs well with it. We are homebodies so doing this is much more appealing than going to a restaurant. We buy most of our wine from the grocery store so when I stumbled upon the REAL SIMPLE magazine’s article, Cheap, Delicious Wine From the Supermarket, I knew I needed to check it out!
Before I tell you what Real Simple suggested, here is a list of my favorite cheap go to wines:
Educated Guess Chardonnay
Kendall Jackson Sauvignon Blanc
J.Lohr Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon
Becker Vineyards Malbec (this is a Texas wine)
Bogle Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon
Corrin’s Go to cheap wines:
I like Real Simple’s list of cheap grocery wines because it gives suggestions of different foods to pair the wines with.
My two questions are: What is your go to cheap wine? Who is going to try one of these from Real Simple’s list and report back?
