Its wine time...on a budget. {2nd Edition}

Y'all ready for some more wine suggestions for this weekend? 

After a suggestion from Krysta (who constantly post AMAZING recipes!), we tried this: 

Apothic Red $7.99
Umm, amazing. And the price is right. Total winner. This California red blend has become a staple at our neighborhood get togethers because just everyone loves it.

Hogue Late Harvest Riesling $6.99
(They do have a regular riesling that we didn't try as well as the Late Harvest)
I know a lot of you said you love muscato. So do I! My sister-in-law brought this Washington state Riesling when she was here last week. It is very sweet, just like a muscato. Only problem? Screw tops make me sad. I want a cork. I guess it would be perfect for a picnic!

Chateau Chanteloup White Bordeaux $8.99
Now, I am totally not a French wine drinker. Just don't like them...I thought. Our Wegman's store has wine tasting every weekend and I just *happened* to be making a run in a couple weeks ago when a little cup got offered to me. How could I say no? This is a delicious white that I would say is like a fruity chardonnay. I couldn't find a picture of it online anywhere outside of this Wegman's ad. Don't know if that means its hard to find?

Now I just need to remember to take my own pics of the wine before I empty them out instead of searching online! 

I have a couple more suggestions from you to try still, but keep them coming! Tell me what's in your wine glass?

  1. I LOVE APOTHIC RED! It's one of my favorites! Where on earth do you find it for $7.99? Everywhere I've seen it in Atlanta it's $10-$12! You should try 3 Girls, which I believe is a Cab, or a blend? Not really sure. Also my boyfriend bought some Smoking Loon (pinot noir) for Vday and it was SO GOOD.

  4. LOVE Reisling. Could seriously drink a bottle a night if that was acceptable (and sometimes I do it anyway). Ha!

    P.S. I'm having a blog sale girlfriend so make sure to check it out :-)

  5. Anonymously, Mine - My Wegmans has it for $7.99 right now! I'm pretty sure DC is as far south as those stores go, though. :(

  6. The way you talk about Wegmans makes me happy. We only have Food Lion and Wal-Mart. :(

  7. I just screamed laughing here at work. He is so funny. I think it's fine for the most part at age 4. More kids replace imaginary friends with real friends once they hit elementary school. Hahjahaahhaa

  8. I'm sad.. Hogue Late Harvest is my FAVORITE Riesling & it's definitely NOT $6.99 here. It's not much more, but it's definitely more.
