does winking owl white Zin contain arsnic?
Hello all, can i buy Winking owl wines somewhre else than Aldi ? Somewhere online ? I am living at southwest Florida and closest Aldi is 90 miles.
Yes. I have a question. First I like Winking Owl Merlot and White Zinfandel. I just want to know what the percentage of alcohol is. It is not stated on any of the bottles. Please email me the answer at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
Brought (smuggled!) 7 bottles of Pinot Grigiot back to Canada from Florida. A wine of this quality would cost at least 4 times the almost $3 I paid. Not a connoisseur, but I know what I like..............and I like this. :)

I'm enjoying Winking Owl Chardonnay right now. Taste is very good for a sub-$5 wine. Lots of fruit flavors with hint of wood barrel vintage. I am a "two buck chuck" fan and think Winking Owl Chardonnay is better. It also rivals Woodbridge Chardonnay.Thanks. merry Christmas and God Bless. JMC

Bought a few bottles for Thanksgiving. Family is not that much along the lines of wine drinkers. So many open bottles and none often are finished. It always seems kind of a waste to have several bottles half empty. So this year I picked up a few bottles from Aldis. The Shiraz was very pleasing. It had a great bouquet and while being fairly ...

SUBJECT: Winking Owl wines at Aldi FoodsHello Wine Lovers;Aldi seems to have ... just recently supplanted the Winking Owl Vineyards with a new vintner called Universal Wine Network...Any body see this? THE WINE IS REALLY BAD COMPARED to the Winking Owl bottler. Help...is it just me or am I correct....UGH//.......lja/JMJ e-mail me @
Literally smells like fresh fruit, lightly of cloves and vanilla, but almost no oak. I was surprised at the jammy flavor and medium mouth-feel. Decent wine for the price, light lunch, or picnic. Read More

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.

I just tried it for the first time. I am used to decent red wines like Robert Mondavi, Kendall Jackson, usually ordered out for $10.00-$15.00 a glass. This has a wonderful oak flavor and is really nice and the price is fantastic at $2.69! Would buy again! Very Pleased:) Read More
My husband and I love wine and just recently started going to the Aldi's store in our area. We just happened to see this wine and thought for the low price we could not afford to "not" try it and we were very pleasantly surprised. We both would describe it as full bodied will have it with our steak dinner tonight! We will definitely buy this again. Read More
For the price of 2.99 at Aldis here in Alsip, IL I have to say its a steal and half! Tastes great, better than some more pricey wines and for 2.99 in these times PERFECT Read More
