Trader Joe’s Three Buck Chuck has reigned at the leader in cheap yet palatable wine for years now, but it seems that they have a bit of competition…Whole Foods has entered the race as well with their Three Wishes Wine.
I found this article particularly helpful in distinguishing between what works best in the world of ultimate vino frugality. No need to waste even $3 on making the wrong choice.
And keep in mind, you are probably not going to pass up on an Opus One for Charles Shaw or Three Wishes. But they are perfectly fine for table wine and cooking wine centric meals like Boeuf Bourguignon.
