We drank all the Two Buck Chuck so you didn't have to, and we even found a sommelier to help taste-test it. The merlot scored the highest, but plenty of others ranked fairly high too. If you're a fan of shiraz or chardonnay, load up.
You can also up your wine game by upping your price point... by a couple dollars. Obviously Two Buck Chuck is the best-selling and cheapest wine TJ's carries, but don't spend all your hard-earned money on the cheap stuff. "We have a lot of wines that are between $4.99-5.99, and they're all really good," a helpful employee told us. That includes the Chariot red, an Italian Contadino pinot grigio, and a 1967 Toscana. There are also wines priced up to $120 p/bottle, but we'd recommend instead buying 24 bottles of the $5 wine.
One favorite wine of the employees isn't $2, $4.99, or $120 -- it's the Tribunal red blend for $9.99. The price point is why it's not "flying off the shelves," but I think it might be because people don't want to drink a wine they associate with military court hearings. Push past the name and pick some up.
