The winking owl White Zinfandel is the best i've tasted in a very long time. Full-bodied taste that's light. Goes great with salads, spicy foods, Latin and Chinese cuisine .

Hello we enjoy the wine. Could you please use real boxes. Just had 6 bottles go from car to the ground and subsequently the storm sewer. The box just fell apart!!!! Bill Baker NC

I think that Winking Owl wine is very good. You can not get a better wine for the price. Dalton Georgia just opened a new Aldi's and I was very happy about that.
This was my college wine.Aldi's was my savior back then.It was oaky, fruity, reasonably good for drinking, and because of the price it also made a great cooking wine. Especially with ridiculously discounted portabella mushrooms my roommate and I managed to find also at Aldi's. Read More

Great wine at a reasonable price.
We were able to pick this up at Aldi's in Joplin on our way to Branson for a short vacation. What a suprise, we finished our 6 bottles in three days and on the way back to Tulsa we picked up an additional dozen bottles, knowing that we could increase our celler once we returned to Tulsa. What a mistake, we haven't been able to find it here in T... Read More

I found out about Winking Owl wine thru a co-worker. I was talking to her about the economy and the high cost of vine. So she informed me about Aldi's and Winking Owl vine, therefore I purchased 1 bottle. To my surprise I loved the Cabernet Sauvignon. I also found a lot of other good bargains at Aldi's. I purchase Winking Owl by the case...
Decent nose, full flavor initially, dark fruit with hint of wood, smooth although short finish. Read More

I tried the wine and found the White Wines lacked any flavor, the Merlot and the Shirez was a great buy with good flavor. I would recomend the Merlot and Shirez to those who drink wine with meals on budgets that are looking for value.
I started dirinking wine after cancer had left me unable to drink anything carbinated. This wine, for the price, is simply unbeatable. It has a crisp and very refreshing flavor that rivals many of the higher priced wine out there. Read More
I have drank several bottles over time & feel this outstanding price performer is a fine addition to a fish/chicken meal. I got no headache from it. Read More

I really like this wine, I have been drinking it for a couple of years and I think it is the best one that Winking Owl makes and tastes as good and better than some much more expensive wines I've tried. I too would like to see them try a Pinot Grigio or a Sauvignon Blanc. Read More
i had a bottle of chardonnay that tasted watered down. Pour that shit out! bought it for about 4 or 5 dollars at a cheap store that you have to bag your own food. Wont be buying that anymore. Read More
