    Most of it is the mass produced wine you'll likely find at a local supermarket. There are some decent wines at BevMo, but they won't be part of the 5 cent deal. It's better to go to a local wine shop where they actually care about the wine they sell to you.

    all this time, i think i have found one, count it, ONE bottle of Chardonnay that i thought was a little too buttery but okay, but Kat liked it well enough once before and thought why not for a bottle to have in the fridge when you want a little taste of something.

    Yeah, It would be rare to walk into a BevMo and ask the person working there to recommend a bottle of Chardonnay that was aged in either a stainless tank or French oak and have them point you in the right direction. You have a higher probability of finding decent help in Trader Joe's actually.

    Wow that's rough, we're still learning alot on the wine front. Never really thought of trader joe's as a place to check out for wine. Might try that for ****s and giggles. Can't wait until it's finally warm enough to go back to the napa, at least then if the wine sucks the view is usually good.

    So we had a good time with the Cupcake Malbec and some strips from Sams Club. For $7 a bottle I'm willing to try it again.

    The best place I have found to buy wine is Costco. Also like the Wine Crush (right actross the street from my house) but it is more expensive. Wine Country on Redondo is also very good. You can actually find some great deals at Rite-Aid like the J. Lohr for $12.99.
