    Great list! I'm always looking for great wines that are within my budget. I'm keeping this one bookmarked and will definitely be picking up some on my next trip to the wine store!

  • If you do try any of these wines, please come back and leave a comment. I would love to know what people think who haven't tasted these wines before.

  • Giovanni

    I am surprised so many people loathe some of these wines, well, except for the Yellow Tail. Those are not the best cheap wines to choose from. I do like the Little Black Dress Pinot Grigio though. Hidden gem.

  • Shocked that you would include swill on your list when so many better wines are available. Yellowtail has made my WORST list for many years now.

  • The Chateau Ste. Michelle riesling pictured is actually "Eroica", which is a team effort from CSM and Dr. Ernst Loosen, and is NOT $7.99 a bottle, more like $20, give or take a couple of bucks depending where you are. But it IS an excellent riesling. Oh, and take those Yellow tails off the list, will you? They barely qualify as table wines. If you want a better Aussie wine, try a Black Opal or Jacob's Creek.

    • Rudy

      I agree with your suggestion in regards to Black Opal. The Black Opal shiraz is much better than Yellow Tail's version of the same, though not as easily available.

  • Tod

    Unfortunately the Yellow Tail bottles are over 10 dollars here in Canada… damn liquor taxes.

  • Brans

    Has anyone else tried Barefoot? The run around $5.99 and are pretty dang good.

  • Rizzo

    That Ravenswood isn't bad

  • Ed

    Ravenwood is excellent. I like Gabbiano's chianti also.

  • Peggy

    "Double Dog Dare" isn't bad for a Chardonnay at $3.99. Yellow Tail Riesling, Chard, and Cab are all good.

  • karl wilder

    I can't abide yellowtail at ny price. Undrinkable swill in my opinion.

  • Jake

    I buy the Ravenswood at Costco for $8.99. I love it. It is very versatile. It has enough character to stand up to nachos watching football yet it is smooth enough to drink with a filet.

  • son

    the Chianti is drinkable, but barely

  • son

    Under $10 amazing wine: try finke-hesse cab (my spelling may be off).

    old dover old vin zines. trentatre rosso (trader joes). many riojas and temprenillos are quite tasty under 10. do not have titles handy but trial and error may find you your favorite!

  • NussJunk

    I have to say Bare Foot wine is the ultimate buy. I like white wine and highly recommend their Chard and Sav. Blanc. I can't believe Yellow Tail is on here twice. Gross! Rob Mondav. is delicious. There's even a white at Wal-Mart that's getting incredibly popular. $3.97/bottle and I kid you not, it's delicious. I think it's Oak Leaf or something like that.

  • I cannot take this list seriously at all. It has not one, but two bottles of Yellow Tail. So no, A for effort, but no points for the Yellow Tail. There are plenty of wines out there with more thunder in the same range.

  • Patrick

    What? No Columbia Crest? One of the best inexpensive wines. Won many awards.

  • David

    Yellowtail and Ravenswood are jokes. I dont get why people are so fascinated by these 2.

    Rosemont and Mouton Cadet are upgrades from the former.

  • Wayne

    I am not crazy over the Yellowtail. For a cheap Chard I prefer the Down Under

    Chard @ $2.49 a bottle. My two favorite Chards @ $5-6 are the Bare Foot

    or Fallen Leaf.

    • Wayne

      I meant Turning Leaf…Not fallen Leaf. The 2008 Turning Leaf

      Chard. is an awesome wine. Found it on sale for $4.98 a

      bottle. The 2007 vintage is not near is good.

  • Umo

    which is the cheapest wine out there??

  • Anon

    i am totally satisfied with this ranking …..Ravenswood Zinfandel is always number 1 nice post like it thanks for sharing it keep it up

  • Flores

    Barefoot is good. Rex Goliath is another. Oak Leaf should not just be an honorable mention. Very good for that price and easy to find.

  • Flores

    Turning Leaf used to be my go to until I found Rex Goliath.
