Maryanne Posted January 12, 2008 Share Posted January 12, 2008 Hi Bucky and others who are wine drinkers.. If you are near a Traders Joe's that has a liquor store you are in luck. They have a $1.99 wine call Charles Shaw or another name is "two buck chuck". We were turned on by a friend who is a wine connoisseur and he gave us a bottle to try. He did not tell us the price or where it was purchased. Joel absolutely loved it. As he is a red wine drinker. I drink white but I did try it. I actually liked it but I still prefer white. Anyway, he told us it was purchased at Trader Joes. We have a couple TJoes near us but they do not sell liguior. There was one 2 hours away in North Jersey. My daughter who lives there brought Joel 2 cases up at Xmas. But she bought the white instead of the red. I tasted the white and loved it and so did she. So we split a case. She was going to take the other one back when her friends tasted it and loved it so they divided it up. She then went back and got her dad a case of the red as he perfers the Cabernet Sauvignon. Now mind you some states charge an extra dollar like New Jersey (what a corrupt state I live in) so it cost $2.99 instead of $1.99. It even is corked. Try it if you have a TJ near you that sells it. Also google it to see peoples comments. The Shiraz actually won a wine tasting award. Charles Shaw is an American brand of "extreme value" wine. All from California vineyards, Charles Shaw wines currently include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz varietals, Valdigue in the style of Beaujolais nouveau, and limited quantities of Pinot Grigio. These wines are distributed predominantly by Trader Joe's grocery stores, and sell for $1.99 in California. Charles Shaw wines are affectionately known as "Two Buck Chuck." Due to the three-tier system, in other states the price can go up to around $4. As such, the wine is often referred to as "Three Buck Chuck" or "Four Buck Chuck" relative to the price. Maryanne PS. Our frinds really like it and want Nicole to bring them cases. Hey for $1.99 try it!! What could you lose 2 bucks -you can always Chuck it...
