The 6 Best Wines You Can Buy at Lidl (and They’re All Under $10)
Fun fact: Lidl—yep, the grocery store—has a fab wine department. That’s because Lidl’s Master of Wine, Adam Lapierre, curates every single bottle. (Did we mention there are only 350 Masters of Wine in the whole entire world?) Head over to find the same selection you’d see at a boutique wine store, for a fraction of the price.
Free Wind Merlot California 2014
This organic pick is brimming with fresh berry flavor and delicate spice. With a medium body and robust layers of fruit dissolving into silky tannis, it’s totally versatile. Crack it open when you’re whipping up a delicious, hearty Sunday night feast.
Free Rain Gewurztraminer 2015
Take a sip and the essence of honey and spice will wash over you, with a finish of crisp, tart green apple. Enjoy it with stinky cheeses (like Camembert and blue cheese) or a slice of banana bread.
1790 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2014
Cheap, good Pinot Noir is typically an oxymoron, but this dark and spicy pick totally fits the bill. Notes of black cherry liqueur, black tea and tart berries leave you coming back for more.
Wicked Winds Russian River Valley Sonoma County Chardonnay 2015
Calling all lovers of smooth, buttery oak: This bottle of sunshine reminds us of sun-kissed golden apples, tart green pears, a whiff of fresh cinnamon stick and a just-lit campfire.
Sinful Grin Petite Sirah California 2015
If you like big, bold vinos, this bottle of boisterous red—full of spicy blackberry notes—was practically designed for you. It’s a meat-and-potatoes kind of wine that lingers in your mouth long after you’ve finished the last drop.
