Cheap wine – most of us enjoy the occasional glass, but having a low price tag might deter you from choosing that bottle. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Forget all the fancy talk because The List headed Tarbell’s Wine Store to bring you four bottles under $11 that’ll please your palate without wrecking your wallet. 

1. Fetzer Valley Oaks Cabernet – $5.99 

Fetzer is a big name in California and has several different brands and price levels. When it comes to the Fetzer Valley Oaks Cabernet, you want to check its color, then give it a sniff and swirl. As you swirl it, there’s going to be some oxygen introduced to this cheap wine, which will help you smell all the different things going on in the bottle.

2. Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio  $7.97

Next on our list is a cheap wine that we love  the Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio, which will set you back less than $8. It’s very aromatic, has a refreshing acidity, and fruity characteristics that make it easy to drink. It’s a great table wine to serve chilled with food or just by itself.  

3. Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc – $9.99

Third on our list is the Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc for only $9.99. The difference between a pinot Grigio and a sauvignon blanc is the grape. Sauvignon blanc has a very aromatic grape. It’s a dry, crisp, cheap wine that’s meant to be served cold.
