How to buy 2 buck Chuck

One of the great deals (sometimes) is Charles Shaw (2 buck Chuck).  The quality is a roller coaster.

The less fashionable the variety, the better chance it’s good.

Whites:  Chardonnay is almost always only worth the 2 bucks.  Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris (same wine but stored slightly differently) tends to be pretty good.

Reds:  Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot tend to be lower end. Better chances lie with Barbera, Syrah / Shiraz (same wine), etc.

1.  Check the lot # on the boxes and if they have a lot you have a chance.
