Cheap Wine versus Affordable Wine
Cheap can be great when it comes to finding sweet travel deals and your favorite shoes or clothing bargains.
But we have all tried the cheaper route many times for whatever reasons.
Lessons were learned, especially when we tried cheap furniture, mattresses, toilet paper, or paint!
Honestly, more than not our choices ended in disappointment.
Understanding that all of us want to purchase or invest in affordable products that yield satisfaction, please add wine to that list.
We drink wine not only for the enjoyment factor but clearly for the taste and total experience as well.
When you see cheap wine proceed with caution.
It's like choosing to walk down a dark alley over a well-lit street.
It may turn out just fine, but why would we risk it?
When it comes to being cheap with your wine, is it really worth it?
Here we mean "cheap" is a bottle of wine that goes for $5 or less.
What is the new buzz at Target stores?
While you fill your red cart you can now choose from five different types of California Roots wine.
This line of cheap wine recently launched for only $5 a bottle right at Target.
Again we would proceed with caution.
The big question is WHY? Why is it so cheap?
Where is it made? What is it filled with?
What do we know about this wine?
If you have had the chance to visit or live near a Trader Joes, you have more than likely opened a bottle of a Two Buck Chuck with excitement.
A bottle of wine for just under three bucks? Why not!
After the first sip, you are quick to realize why it is so cheap.
But at least with Charles Shaw, we have history and a solid understanding of the why and how behind this wine.
Obviously, there are enough wine drinkers that appreciate the taste and ease on their pocketbook.
In regards to the new cheap wine at Target, we will definitely keep an eye on the reviews as we have an interest in this new trend.
Now you may have found a cheap wine that tastes great, looks right, doesn't give you a headache, hives, sinus congestion or leave you with a hangover.
If it lets you have a nice time and you are satisfied...consider yourself lucky.
Most wine lovers will find that cheap wine just won't do.
Affordable wines are that you can trust are the goal. Being able to enjoy a wine that is exquisite but doesn't hurt your pocket book.
Here are some of our top favorite affordable wines for your next wine shopping trip, whether they are for you or a gift.
