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...

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 would buy by the case.I don't think I wou... Read More
CHEAP bottle of wine! and by that i mean inexpensive. this is honestly one of my very favorites though. started drinking it for the price tag, but stands up to much pricier bottles. it's a crisp, refreshing chardonnay. not oaky, and that's the way i like it. Read More
sweet berry on the nose, red licorice with spiciness and a soft oak on the tongue. I liked it! Not bad for Aldi's! Read More
Light, transparent ruby color, has a nose of sweet berry, very reminiscent of a white zin, very light texture in the mouth, with light berry, slightly dryer than a white zin, oak was very weak. Okay for a beginner wine drinker. Read More
Headache/ Cheap ??? Maybe it's not the wine, but the person tasting it --- perhaps YOUR the weak one! We like it. Yellow Tail was once under $5.00, until it gained attention, now it is a wonderful/popular wine. Read More
