I’ve always respected small wine retailers, and some have wonderful customer service. But to get the best deals that are easily accessible for most in the US, you would probably end up looking for bottles at large wine retailers.
So, here are three of the large wine retailers you can check out.
When you’re stopping to pick up a bottle of wine on the way to a party or home, Costco is one where there’s plenty of affordable bottles available. They don’t have the broadest selection, but Costco does tend to bring some very good wine bottles, especially at such a low price point.
One of Costco’s appeals is that they sell very nice wines with minimal markup. Are you looking for a cheap but good bottle of wine for a dinner party you’re hosting? Costco’s wine selections have great wines under $20.
Regardless of what wine style you’re after, you can find a bottle from Costco’s private label brand Kirkland Signature. They are inexpensive bottles but high-quality wines from excellent wineries – exclusive for Costco!
2. Total Wine
With over 200 superstores in 27 different states, Total Wine & More is one of the specialist stores where you can buy bottles of wine at a bargain. It’s also one of the largest independent retailers of high-quality and fine wines from all over the world.
Visit a Total Wine store near your or check out its website. Their typical store carries over 8,000 different wines from most, if not all, wine-producing regions worldwide. Whatever type of wine you prefer from whichever wine region in the world, you can probably find one in their store. They also have sulfite-free or organic wines if you are looking for those.
Besides their bargain prices, Total Wine also offers the best wine deals and promos. They have online promotions, in-store ads, limited-time specials, and bulk discounts. You can save 10% to 15% on their wine deals!
They have free tastings and educational events, too, one of the reasons why their casual wine shoppers turn into lifelong wine lovers.
3. Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s is usually known for its groceries but is also famous for its selection of cheap, private-label wines. The shop has a remarkable selection of wines if you are looking for bottles that are reasonably priced!
If you’re on a wine bottle run the next time, check out Trader Joe’s selection. They have a range of bottles priced under $10. You don’t even have to buy four or six bottles to get the lowest prices. They also carry an exciting range of imports from France, Argentina, Spain, Chile, and other countries.
TIP – After purchasing a bottle of wine, also look into getting a wine aerator. This will help your bottle smell and taste better!
