The Charles Shaw label is best known for producing wines of “extreme value.” These became popular when marketed exclusively out of Trader Joe’s grocery chain for $1.99, known commonly as “Two Buck Chuck.” It is owned by the Bronco Wine Company out of Ceres, California. The wines are produced from the usual suspect grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel (as White Zinfandel “blush” wine). The Valdiguie style is produced to mimic Beaujolais Nouveau wines, and Pinot Grigio in limited quantities.

    Snoothrank:

    Acceptable for the price. Drank half a bottle before I got on a flight and it worked perfectly. If I had a Trader Joes where I live I would drink more 2 Buck Chuck casually. Read More

  • I used to spend a LOT of time on snooth, but a job assignment took me away for awhile.  I am seeing some new faces, and some old.  As one who is catching up, I would like to hear from some new people here.   I think/hope we all share not only a love for wine, but a desire to share our experience.  Welcome, new Snoothers!

  • If anyone has tried this quiet and extremely affordable wine, you will no doubt be surprised by it's quality. For the price and consistancy, it has a great following. All I can say is to try it. You just might be surprised.

  • My wife and I would like to thank you and your staff for making the best wine we have had in a long time. It is also we thank TRADER JOE'S for moving into Omaha Ne, otherwise I do not think we would have seen this great Wite Zinfandel 2009. My wife and I really enjoy the fruitfulness and the flowery flavor. Thanks Daniel & Mariella Maca...

  • Greg T is correct that Gallo is involved in Gascon, but, they are still owned by the same family they have been for a century. Gallo distributes them due to their huge distribution chain already in place along with many others such as Martin Codax, Davinci, and Ecco Domani.

All of it was orders from those from Sun City. Like why buy a 8 to 1...
