We've had some great bottles in the $3 to $5 range from Grocery Outlet. Yes, they have Two Buck Chuck. But they have some others too. They have an Australian Cab called GumBear that's actually pretty good. Gotta concur on the Charles Shaw Merlot. We've had an open bottle on the counter for a few days that nobody's touched. And that NEVER happens around here! You also have to watch the vintages on the white wines, they sometimes are trying to unload some older bottles.

I'll have to ammend my comment on the $3 wine. We had good results with it when we first bought some. But a month later we went back and bought more of the same label and it was not as good. Not sure what the problem was but we switched to the $8 stuff and it seems to be more consistant. maybe the cheap stuff doesn't age well?
I reas somewhere that the cheap stuff is whatever overruns they can buy cheaply so the quality varies depending on what they can get their hands on...

I'll second the Black Box, equates to 6-7 bucks a bottle but comes in a box, 14.5 by volume, good taste after decanting.

[QUOTE they sometimes are trying to unload some older bottles.[/QUOTE]

What's the world coming to? selling aged/vintage wine?......tsk, tsk....

Just kidding.......personally, wifey and I prefer Vella White Zin, and Franzia Chillable Red.....along with Chardonay and Mountain Rhine.....$13-16 per 5 Litres.
It's all cheap and drinkable......

Totally different story when dining out (when you really feel the need to justify the additional expense and enjoyment).....then it's $20 - $40 per bottle.....makes me wanna puke paying those prices however.....

We only wish we could find Chuck around here......

Again, A mountain of responses here HOWEVER: I happen to be lucky enough to be anchored in a small southern town with a very good liquor/wine store. This place has litterally Thousands of bottles of wine from everywhere imaginable. SOOooo .................

They actually carry "boat wine" it's an actual brand with a sailboat on the label and comes in the usual varieties (Red and White ........... LOL) and costs around $5.00 to $7.00 a bottle. Thats all I know about it right now. I buy my boat wine from Walmart at about $3.00 a bottle ..... ;o)

For a buck more at TJs you can buy the J Morris wines which taste much less like mouthwash than 2 buck Charlie wines. With the exception of the Chuck Shaw Syrah, I think all the Chuck Shaw wines are dreadful. As mentioned above bottle variation of 2 buck Chuck is all over the map. TJ's has lots of cheap Italian whites and reds that are serviceable. One benefit of TJs is if you don't like the wine, put the cork back in it and take it back for a refund, no problem, very nice policy IMO.
