Wine Not Spend Less

It's a well-established fact that cheap doesn't always mean bad when it comes to wine, and there's probably no grocery store as well-equipped for this as Trader Joe's — and no, we’re not just talking about the store's beloved 'Two-Buck Chuck.' With a huge wine selection featuring affordable bottles that line the aisles, it's hard to know where to start. Here are 11 of the best Trader Joe's wines to buy, each coming in at less than $10.

Maria Jola Sangria

Price: $6.99


Who doesn't want a bottle of sangria in the house at all times? Grab an armful of these wines at Trader Joe’s, throw some fruit in there, and sit out on the deck with your friends. And some olives might be nice, if you wouldn't mind.

Loudenotte Cuvée Réservée Pinot Noir

Price: $7.99


"Four stars on value alone," writes one reviewer. Notes of dark fruit like cherry and plum seem to set the profile for this French pinot, an excellent option when it comes to cheap Trader Joe’s wine.

Dr. Beckermann Liebfraumilch

Dr. Beckermann Liebfraumilch

Price: $5.99


Dr. Beckermann sounds a lot more like a guy that might remove an ingrown toenail than a winemaker, but that's fine. His German riesling (which is a lot easier to say than Liebfraumilch) runs only $6 at Trader Joe's and makes a fine pairing with a few oysters on the half shell.

Albert Bichot Aime La Vie! Pinot Noir - Syrah
Wilder Shaw / Cheapism

Albert Bichot Aime La Vie! Pinot Noir-Syrah

Price: $7.99


It's pretty hard to miss branding as aggressive as Aime La Vie, but in case you do, stick this red wine on your list. It's a little on the fruity side, and for the price, it's one of the best affordable bottles from Trader Joe's wine selection.

Espiral Vinho Verde

Espiral Vinho Verde

Price: $4.49


These trendy Portuguese wines have become pretty popular, and it's easy to see why. Espiral's vinho verde is light and acidic, pairs nicely with shellfish and vegetables, and only costs a staggering $4.50.

La Ferme Julien Rose

La Ferme Julien Rosé

Price: $6


I can't believe this wine is only $6. This is a personal favorite, and it's stocked at almost all times in my fridge. I've had $45 bottles of rosé that don't taste as good as this. Buy a few at a time; you'll go through it quicker than you expect.

Badet Clement Pontificis Red Blend

Badet Clement Pontificis Red Blend

Price: $6.99


For an easy-drinking table wine, Badet Clement Pontificis won't disappoint. The Vivino reviews seem unified in pointing out what a great quality-price-ratio is going on here in this $7 red blend.

Floriana Grüner Veltliner

Floriana Grüner Veltliner

Price: $6.99


Floriana Grüner Veltliner is a fruity, citrusy, Hungarian white, and Trader Joe's only wants seven of your hard-earned dollars for it. One reviewer calls it "Perfect for an October 2nd wedding on a warm fall Philadelphia evening," so be sure to keep that in mind.

Maison Barboulot Cabernet - Syrah
Wilder Shaw / Cheapism

Maison Barboulot Cabernet-Syrah

Price: $6.49


Produced in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, you can pour this bold, sweet wine alongside a nice steak or even a cheese tray. 

Masca del Tacco Susumaniello
Wilder Shaw / Cheapism

Masca del Tacco Susumaniello

Price: $9.99


Ah yes, the big $10 splurge. Masca del Tacco has gotten a lot of acclaim, regardless of price. "What a bomb of ripe fruit, jam, plums and a lot of sunshine in this relatively unknown Italian grape variety," writes one reviewer, before back-peddling a bit with, "simple but very likable."
