Best Chardonnays Under $10


Wedding planning, oh wedding planning...what can I say about planning the best night of your life? It might be one of the most time-consuming, mentally-draining, stressful things I have ever done. With that being said, my vision is finally coming to life and I celebrate the little wins each day with finding a new vendor, or a small detail that adds just the right touch to my theme. One fun yet taxing task we have added to our plate is finding our wine selection. If you have kept up with my blog, you know I am very passionate about wine. I have been to weddings where the Bride and Groom have no say over their alcohol selection other than picking a pre-flighted tier that the caterer selected. For the Bride who loves to have as little choices as possible, that is fantastic! However, because of the fact I am passionate about food & wine and consider myself to have a decent palate, I was eager to choose the wines I serve at our wedding. Therefore, I got thinking....is it possible to find wine under $10/bottle that are elegant and full-bodied that don't leave you clenching your head the next morning from a hangover?

In steps....


We have all heard of the $2 buck chuck. I was always under the impression that the more expensive the wine, the better the flavor. This is absolutely not true. The cost of wine is simply relevant to the cost to produce the wine. So I went to my local Trader Joe's because their wine selection is so inexpensive and asked the sommelier to make some recommendations. I tried all of the wines he suggested and some of the wines friends brought me for my birthday (who knew I was writing this piece) and made my selections. 

Here are the top 5 wines under $10: (in random order)


Taste notes: creamy with balanced acidity with flavors of fig, apple and butter.


Taste notes: citrus, melon & very crisp!


Taste notes: smooth finish, creamy & rich. (my favorite from this list!)


Taste notes: crisp, creamy & full-bodied.


Taste notes: pineapple, vanilla and buttery finish.

Pick up a bottle and let me know what you think in the comments!
