Posted on 10/06/2012 12:11:29 PM PDT by randita
I'm looking for some new wine to try but don't want to break the bank. I'm tired of the same old, same old that I always buy.
I know there are a lot of regional wineries which produce limited amounts of affordable wine, but it would be most helpful to have suggestions of wine that can be obtained nationally.
Thanks and cheers!
Tisdale and Five Oaks Pinot Grigio - both under $4 a bottle!!
Blue Nun Liebfraumlich
Lets see if we can get you some help.
Ping to the Homebrewers.
IBTR (In Before the Ripple!)
livingston red rose’
love it! but i am cheap.
Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon. I let them age a couple years before opening..
Best $5 wine you’ll drink.
ripple, he he he he he........................
Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. I get it for $11.99 but that’s in NYC. So it may be cheaper where you are?
Full review here:
I have such a great source, a discounter who buys damaged, bankrupt, unknown brand, change of label goods, that all my wines (Napa Valley, Australia, Chile, Germany, even France) that all my under $10 wines are in reality over $10 wines and frequently $20+ wines. But... I happen to be on the wagon.
“Two Buck Chuck” from Trader Joe’s. (Except I think it’s now $3.)
('specially if'n y'git caught)
Red or white?
My wife really likes the Barefoot wines, her favorite is the Riesling
Smoking Loon. Always a good bottle.
I always loved an Aussie blended red wine called Stump Jump. I’m pretty sure it is a Shiraz blend. When I bought it back in Chicago it was around $10. Can’t find it in East Teaxs alas.
Real nice and a great value.
If you like red, try any Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, $9-15 a bottle. Italian, great with spaghetti or steak, even works as a pre-dinner wine. This wine wins tasting contests against more expensive wines all the time.
If you like white, may God have mercy on you.
My favorite whine is “Mitt Romney hates the poor”.
actually, we should be more fair. i like a sweet wine, and red. that’s why i said livingston’s red rose’. others that i know like some of the “barefoot” wines. they are from down under.
since i am into mostly red wines, give us your preference so we can properly nail it down. i do not like dry wines at all, so i might not be able to help you.
I just got an email about inexpensive wines yesterday. This may give you some ideas. My favorite wine under $10.00 was a Ludovicus Terra Alta Pinol. I bought several bottles last year but I hace not seen it this year.
Alamos Malbec 2010 (Mendosa Argentina)
What a Mendoza Malbec bargain for only $7.99. I drank this one somewhat price-blind (I couldn’t remember what I paid for it) and would have definitely put it closer to $15. I just covered another Costco red $7 steal and didn’t think I’d find another one so quickly!
Are you looking for a local unpasturized or unbonded wine?
If it’s a wine from out of state or overseas it will be either of these. Where do you live? If in Texas, we have some wonderful wines. Some vineyards are close by and some a bit away, so it’s always a kind of holiday to try a new winery, somewhere. If you live in WA State, there are some very good wineries east and west of the mountains.

For years I worked in a big city ER which had many,many winos as “clients”.One day a wino came in,all but comatose,and we had to relieve him of his valuables (temporarily,of course).Among the things he had on his person was an empty bottle of cheap wine whose label boasted that the grapes used were grown in *Ohio*.I laughed for the rest of the shift...and for some time after that.
Take your pick.
Pinecroft Cabernet or Merlot is a great value for around $5
Beat me to it.
It’s not in HEB? See if they can get it for you. Do you know the wine company? Barefoot or so?
Y’all for got the Annie Green Springs and Ripple! ;)
I live in VA. I like semi-dry wine, either red or white.
Is that your wine rack, or the place where you store your industrial grease cutter?
One question I occasionally ask at the wine store: “What do you recommend in a screw top?” Classy, huh?
Do you have Trader Joe’s where you live?
Buy one of every thing they have in that price range in the varietals you prefer, then go back for more of what you like.
Cupcake Angel Food—I think it is a cross btw a Chard and a Pinot Grigio—but really yummy. About 8-9. Cupcake Chardonnay is also good.
Two Buck Chuck, or course...the Sauvignon Blanc.
If you can find it onsale for about 13 bucks, La Crema Chard (the Pinot Noir is also great but on sale it is usually about 20.00).
You folks are going to laugh at me. And I don’t care. I’m a wino from way back!!!
I’ve made wine for over twenty years and have a half acre vineyard of mostly grafted vinifera variety grapes. (Lost most of them to a hard winter though)
Even took a few wine judging training classes through the American Wine Society.
And one of my favorite all time wines for about $10 per bottle, are you ready for this..... drum roll....
..... is the Johannesburg Riesling at Sam’s Club in the long neck blue bottle (actually a 1.5 liter double bottle) and still only $10 here in NC. It’s imported from Germany and everyone loves it. Even the Cabernet Sauv and Chardonnay wine snobs. Not too sweet, not too dry, excellent fruit flavor. They use the old style German cold fermentation not fount in American Rieslings. I buy it by the case and always take it as my gift wine at parties. Never fails.
OOPS! Sorry for the double post.
Don’t forget the main link:
Night Train Express
17.5% alc. by vol.
“Don’t let the 0.5% less alcohol by volume fool you, the Night Train is all business when it pulls into the station. All aboard to nowhere - woo wooo! The night train runs only one route: sober to stupid with no roundtrip tickets available, and a strong likelihood of a train wreck along the way. This train yard favorite is vinted and bottled by E&J Gallo Winery, in in Modesto, CA. Don’t bother looking on their web page, because they dare not mention it there. As a clever disguise, the label says that it is made by “Night Train Limited.” Some suspect that Night Train is really just Thunderbird with some Kool-Aid-like substance added to try to mask the Clorox flavor. Some of our researchers indicated that it gave them a NyQuil-like drowsiness, and perhaps this is why they put “night” in the name. “
