I can’t believe there are people out there who don’t like wine. Those people are the ones just as crazy as the ones who don’t like coffee.
Totally kidding. But I don’t understand it.
If you have a palate that appreciates wine, this post is for you.
In this baseball life we don’t live as lavish of a life as we do back at home. Which means we have to cut corners where we can to make ends meet. Justin and I thought about cutting down our wine consumption to save money since the bottles add up pretty quick when you think about it (2 good bottles a week is $25+ a week x 4 weeks = can’t be spending that much on wine). We were crazy for thinking of drinking less wine and I say that in the least alcoholic sounding way. We just really enjoy wine after a long day, which a lot of days are here. So we opted to buying cheaper wine.
Us being wine drinkers, we weren’t too fond of cheap wine. Until we found the good ones. Not all expensive wine is good and not all good wine is expensive. We started trying different wines from different stores, like Target, Trader Joes, Aldi and Kroger. I found a few good ones that I thought I would share with y’all since you probably like wine as much as me. I’m not going to go into too much detail about the taste of the wine because I can go on and on, so we’re going to keep it simple and list it out. Also, we only drink Cabernets and Pinot Noir, so as for the other types of wine each brand sells, we are not including those! These are our favorite red wines under $10…
Ok, this has to be one of Justin and I’s favorite wines. The price ranges from $17-$9 depending on where you go. We have found it cheapest at Trader Joes for $9.99, which means IT MADE THE CUT.
Casillero Del Diablo $9.99
Robert Mondavi $8.99
Dark Horse $7.88
Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi $10.99
I know its .99 more than the cut off, but this bottle is HUGE. So I figured we’d make an exception. It definitely has more than 6 glasses in it, where as a normal bottle contains 4 glasses.
California Roots $5.00
(Target wine, so good!)
Charles Shaw $2.99
(Trader Joes 2 buck chuck wine)
Winking Owl $2.89
(Aldi 2 buck chuck wine)
