  • I purchased the 3L box of white blended wine. Although I enjoy the taste, the design of the box needs improvement. The opening is not like the usual 3L boxes and it inhibits the flow of wine out of the tap. Also, the tap is not easy to press to release the wine. Sandy Aders

  • Winking Owl Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Los Angeles County 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Winking Owl Vineyards Merlot Los Angeles County 2005

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Winking Owl Vineyards Chardonnay Los Angeles County 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Winking Owl Vineyards Shiraz Los Angeles County NV

    Snoothrank:

    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
