2. Vignobles Lacheteau Muscadet
Best if you serve it really cold, this Muscadet wine is perfectly paired with seafood.
This is a smooth, dry, and fruity pinot that tastes like it costs more than it does wine. It’s perfect for a dinner party where you want the impress without going broke.
Price: $3.99 – 5.49
The grapes in this Chardonnay come from the Murray Darling grape-growing area of South Eastern Australia and has a fruity, moderately oaky taste.
A decent Torrontes is usually about double this price so this wine is a real bargain. It’s fruity (but not sweet) and will go well with almost any meal.
This Gavi is exclusive to Trader Joe’s and is perfect for a summer meal.
From a bottle that looks like this don’t you think it should probably cost more than $5.99? Well, it doesn’t. You get this excellent bottle of Spanish red for the price of a fancy coffee. Wine or coffee? Wine please
Both of these wines are sure to make you want a second or third glass, and you can’t beat the price.
This is my everyday wine. Home from work, open the bottle and yep, its just me and my wine time.
With a bit of green apple and melon, it makes a light summery choice. ( but go ahead, drink it anytime)
So if you didn’t know about Trader Joe’s wines, now you do. And now you know you can afford to have several on hand for company, or for the next Hallmark movie.
