Weeknight Wines

 wine is to women...
From the push of Sunkissed and Southern, I've been taking pictures of my favorite weekday wines and saving them in an album on my phone for this blog post.

I figured that I would just be saving them on my phone for this post, but it's actually been super helpful to go though my album while I'm at the store to remember the wines I've liked in the weeks past.

During the week, I don't like to open super nice bottles. We only have a glass or two (sometimes three!) and so a lot of times the bottle ends up in the fridge for a few days. For that reason, I would never open a +$25 bottle and then stick it in fridge to ruin it!
But, at the same token - I'm pretty particular about my wine. Yellowtail, or pretty much any other wine that you can buy at CVS is not going to cut it for me. 

So, these have been my favorite under $20 bottles over the last few months. Most of them I picked up at Bristol Farms, and some came courtesy of our wine club at Corks'n'Crowns. 

Which, I'm not sure if you are in need of a wine club, but theirs is amazing. It's very affordable and you get 2 bottles of California wine a month, and every month they feature a different winery. 

Chateau Saint-Antoine - Bordeaux ($9.99)
I typically drink a very safe Cabernet sauviogn, but this is a stellar blend and tastes much more expenisive than it is.


I typically hate merlot, and I was drop dead obsessed with this bottle. If you ever see it, stock up!

This is a really popular wine that you can find in most stores - highly recommend!

What's your go-to weeknight wine?  What should I add to my list?


  1. Great wine list! I'll definitely be checking a lot of these out! I love Cupcake for a cheaper wine and Bogle is great too for a middle of the road wine.

  2. Love this post! I will check these out! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the shout out! Now I'm going to have to make a list of wines to try. I totally normally dig yellowtail. But then we came back from Italy and it tasted gross after experiencing all their wine. Hmmm....first world problems.

  4. Great suggestions--I'm really trying to expand my red palate. I usually just stick to Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc during the week (and weekend).

  5. I wish I loved wine...I'm trying :)

  6. Yum! I LOVE Cabernet Sauvignon! I'll have to remember these.

  7. Girl, you need to start drinking some wine from the Okanagan Valley in BC. If you want specific suggestions, I can send them to you, but they are the BEST. Get on it!
