Trader Joe's Wine Guide

It's hereeeee! I know I know I took forever getting this out to you. Please forgive me! Thankfully you can refer to this guide all year long, not just for Thanksgiving! I am going to be sharing with you some of my favorite wines I love purchasing at Trader Joe's along with some food pairings that are of course from TJ's too!

First up, no wine guide could be complete without some reasonably priced and delicious bubbly. Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore is one of my go-to Prosecco's during my holiday shopping at Trader Joe's! Of course, this prosecco is excellent on its own but I love to use it in my Aperol Spritz! I am not giving you a food pairing with this one because this is a bubbly for you to sip on as your aperitif while your food is being made! This prosecco is priced at a crisp price of $10.99.

Next up we have a beautiful Spanish red, La Sonriente priced at $6.99. Like what? Yes, it's not too be good to be true. Whoever said cheap wines are no good, they are very wrong. This is an incredible valued Garnacha with earthiness and subtle stewed fruit. Pair this alongside Trader Joe's Beef and Stout Pies and your stomach will feel nice and warm! Guarantee it.

Another Garnacha I can't help to share is Satis Dei Syrah Garnacha. Not only is this bottle beautiful and looks way pricier than what it is, but the wine is also just as incredible for the price of $8.99. Seriously TJ's how are you so good to us? This bold and distinctive flavored Spanish red needs to compliment a strong savory dish. Next time you're in Trader Joe's pick up this wine with St Illtyd and Horseradish Cheddar Cheeses!

Trader Joe's Epicuro Primitivo is a must buy wine during the holiday season priced at $5.99. Yes, I am not kidding. Primitivo is the Italian term for the well known varietal, Zinfandel. I am a pretty big fan of zins, especially when I can get an epic one under $10. Though rich and fruit-forward, the tannins in this wine are soft and balanced. Pair this along-side TJ's frozen Margarita pizza and you have a date night under $20 that no one could complain about.

Who said Rosé was just for summer? Whenever someone is looking for a cheap, crowd-pleasing rosé they can buy a bunch of, La Vieille Ferme is my go-to! T'J's prices this tasty rosé at $7.99 which makes it hard to resist picking up a bottle (or 6) whenever I am grocery shopping. This easy sipper that I can only describe as fresh and fruity makes the perfect aperitif or complement to your holiday cheese board!

Another rosé I can't help myself to share with you is Albero Spanish Rose, a certified organic wine of TJ's. This rosé is a bit more intense that the La Ferme I just mentioned. I love to pair this with spicy dishes or seafood! Some of my favorite TJ's top picks for food pairings are the Spicy Lamb Vindaloo, Vegetable Pad Thai, and Seafood Paella. This wine is priced at a small price of $5.99, cheers!
