Barefoot’s Riesling is my go to cheap wine. Sweet and delicious, and doesn’t taste too cheap

for a red, 1967 at trader joes. We have tried 100’s of wines and for the price this is amazing.

Blue Nun & Risata Riesling are around $15 here but are the only white wines I’ve bought more than once.  I think the only reds I’ve bought more than once were Oak Leaf Merlot, Intermingle and Los Andicos.  Intermingle & Los Andicos I found at our local Aldi store (we don’t have a Trader Joe’s around us.)

If you have a local italian shop (the kind that sells imported cheese, salami, dry goods and WINE) ask them for recommendations. I like Italian wine, and they gave me a deal on a case (better than the price they sell it for a bottle). Call me a snob, but I wouldn’t recommend doing Barefoot, Yellow tail, or any super market cheap wines that just say to your guests”McWine”. But beware of BevMo, I must have tried 10 or more $10 or less (Or on sale wines) from BevMo and they all were crappy. I learned the hard way that those wines are on sale there for a reason.

I really like a red blend called Dead Bolt. All my friends and family who have tried it have liked it. I also think malbecs are a good way to go. I’ve never had one I didn’t like.

Crane lake! It’s almost embarrassing how cheap it is (at my grocery store it’s $5.50/bottle), but I genuinely really enjoy the cab sav

Barefoot Reisling is really good! Its of course not an expensive bottle of wine but its something that I have purchased more than once. My non wine drinking friends love it and so do my friends who enjoy wine on a regular basis!

If you’re worried about guests judging your wine, maybe custom labels?

I love Casillero del Diablo.  Usually it’s like $8-12 near me.  They have a few different types and I’ve enjoyed all of them.

I dont know how easy this would be to do outside of New Zealand, but here, when I want a cheap red wine, I buy a central otago pinot noir cleanskin, and its pretty much foolproof, because I dont think central otago really does cheap pinot. They have all been delicious. I probably wouldnt do it with anything else though!
