  • I am 75 + and a home brewer of mostly beer. I am very impressed with Winking Owl wines I purchase at the local Aldi's market. I have been given expensive wines from friends but none are smooth as Winking Owl.

  • 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.

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Winking Owl Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Los Angeles County NV

    Snoothrank:

    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
