Best inexpensive white wines and rosé



Sharing some of the best inexpensive white wines that I’ve found at Trader Joe’s, Target, and Costco. This is a follow-up to my post about the best inexpensive red wines! <— I need to add my current faves to this list: Meiomi Pinot Noir and Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Hands in the air if you’re extra thankful for wine over the past few months. I mean, I’ve always LOVED wine, but something about ‘Rona wine has just really lifted my proverbial spirits. Before all of this, I was having a glass of wine maybe 1-2 times a week.. and now, it’s up to 3-5 per week. During this crazy time, I’m all about finding joy however you can. Wine and shopping are bringing me joy.

It’s funny that I’m writing this post because I love ALL wine. I used to veer towards red, but over the past year, I started to really fall in love with white wines. So now, if you give me anything made with fermented grapes, there’s a chance I’ll really like it. I’m also the worst wine taster ever. “It has notes of butter… and fruit… and the inside of a latex balloon.” Very much a wine expert here, folks.

Best inexpensive white wines and rosé

Butter chardonnay

California – Butter Chardonnay has aromas of apple pie and a rich creaminess that surrounds you at each sip. Aged in oak, this wine sees brightness, complexity and depth in the creaminess.

This is my #1 favorite wine right now. It’s very inexpensive – usually around $14- and is SO good out of the fridge. It’s bright and fruity and delicious.

Betrand Cote de Roses Rosé

I get this bottle whenever we head to Costco. It’s also around $14 and the bottle itself is gorgeous with the rose bottom! If you want to give wine as a gift, this bottle is beautiful and unique. (It also tastes amazing so there ya go.)

Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough, New Zealand – A full flavored, medium-bodied wine, with an abundance of vibrand currant and gooseberry flavors, that linger on the dry, clean finish. Enjoy with salads, poultry, shellfish and Pan-Asian cuisine.

This one is light and a bit on the drier side. It’s really delicious with a giant salad or sushi.

La Marca Prosecco

Veneto, Italy- La Marca Prosecco is a fresh sparkling wine with a vibrant bouquet of apple, white peach and honeysuckle. The soft, harmonious fruity notes highlighted by pleasant acidity make this wine ideal for any occasion.

This is just a bubbly fruity dream. It feels celebratory and fun without a high price point. It’s around $12 a bottle and they also sell the mini bottles at Target and Walgreen’s. (I’ve left these on friends’ doorsteps with a little succulent and chocolate bar as a fun treat during these weirdo times.)

Apothic White Wine Blend

California- Apothic White is an approachable blend that combines Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato to create a luscious, vibrant wine in the bold style of Apothic. Intense flavors of peach, pineapple, honey and vanilla spice make this smooth white blend unforgettable.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It’s only $9 and very smooth – no bite at all.

So tell me, friends: what’s something small that’s bringing you joy right now? Wine lovers: team red or white wine?
