Say hello to getting a low-priced Chianti at your favorite big box superstore! Walmart’s line of budget-friendly wine is here and now you can pick up a bottle along with a few pool noodles, sunscreen, a vacuum cleaner and the remote-controlled model car that your 6-year-old absolutely, positively has to have.
Walmart’s “Winemakers Selection” collection includes an Italian Sangiovese, Italian Red Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chianti and more—and all for between $10 to $16 per bottle. The new line is now in 1,000 Walmart stores, but don’t expect to get it online.
Among the 10 labels in this collection, you’ll find wines from across the globe. This includes vino from Italy, France and California. The retail giant is just trying to bring their customers cheapo wine options for less. Even though the price is on point, these are no bargain basement drinks. Walmart’s senior wine buyer, Nichole Simpson, told USA Today that the “Winemaker Selection” labels, “drink like a $30 to $40 bottle of wine.”
So there you go. Walmart is now your one-stop shop for groceries, toys, electronics and apparently…wine. If you hadn’t already noticed, this new alcohol-infused addition isn’t the only big box or chain retailer wine line. Trader Joe’s has a selection of priced-nicely picks and Target carries the $5 a bottle California Roots line.
