      cheap doesn't necessarily mean "bad" ....& our local warehouse wine seller always has a "clearance bin" where you can get a $50 bottle for say, 19.95...

          I am really loving the Barefoot wines, particularly the pinot grigio and riesling.  I have found the pinot in mini bottles, which is especially nice if I just want a generous serving and not half a bottle.  Barefoot wines are really cheap and really good.

            Barefoot does good stuff for the money!

             

            But a riesling can have high residual sugar, and those kinds of wine tend to make me a little headachey. Maybe iz jus' me.

              I don't like sweet rieslings...partly because of that.  Hubby has one he likes that ALWAYS gives me a headache.  The barefoot one is pretty dry.  I like Blue Fish's dry riesling, too.

                Those are just fine.  Try some of the Fisheye wines in the box...some aren't too bad, especially if you just need a blast.

                  My favorite box wine is the Hardy's Stamp of Australia Riesling.  I should buy that, again.  The mini bottles of Barefoot are nice, but relatively expensive.

                    This is REALLY good:

                     

                    Admittedly, I bought it for the cute label, but the contents of the bottle are excellent.  I think retail was $10, but it was on sale for $8.  Yum!
