The Best Under $10 Wine at Trader Joe’s

Let’s be honest: I’m down for a glass of wine on any day that ends in Y. A good bottle of wine pairs well with just about any occasion. Celebrating a promotion? Wine. Mending a broken heart? Wine. Standing alone at a bar and unsure of what to do with your hands? Wine. Still coping with the Friends finale 15 years later? Wine. Cheese? Wine.

There are only two things that I love more than hearing the crisp pop of a wine cork after a long day of hustling at the office: a sweet deal and my good pal Trader Joe. Trader Joe’s is home to an impressive selection of vino, and I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t feel a bit overwhelmed when deciding on what bottle to add to a grocery cart that’s already bursting at the seams.

I’m no expert in wine, but I do believe that I’m a solid representative for those of us who are looking for a good time whilst ballin’ on a budget. After years of trial, error, recommendations, and scouring the World Wide Web for the most deliciously affordable bottles of wine, I’ve compiled a list of favorites that keep my wallet and inner wine snob happy. One day, I’ll reach for Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame at TJ’s ($131.99) and I’ll know that I’ve made it. Until then, you can find me blissfully shopping this list of my favorite TJ’s wine for under $10. Cheers!

    Are these strong? Often times I see that wines on the more budget friendly side are often lacking in alcohol content.

      $9999 and $9903…….. Both of these paychecks I have received after my registering of an on-line job almost two months before. I am not expert and not an online professional but still I am in a position to obtain Thousands every month. This task is incredibly easy to do and also its regular earnings are brilliant.

  • Omg you hit SO many of our favorites!! We love the Gruner Veltliner & Espiral, and also Moon X (pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon) and La Ferme rosé!

    You should also check out the Primitivo red wine (the red label is the best) & Cocobon. SO good!!

  • I wrote about the Espiral and Gruner Veltliner in my TJ”s under $10 white wine guide. Love them!

  • Hello Ashley Selleke!

    Great job here on The EveryGirl!

    This blog article was so relatable and super helpful. I am a
    regular shopper at Trader Joe’s and have never been to their wine section. It
    has never crossed my mind that they would $10 or under. That is quite amazing and
    thank you for this revelation!

    I just started to explore the world of wine. Currently, I am
    in love with Moscato and can’t seem to keep away from it, but I would like to try
    more wines out there.

    From your list, I have tasted Rose before, and I did not
    really enjoy it. However, you named a couple of white wines that I absolutely
    want to try and hopefully love!
