So I've graduated in life to the point where box wine or two buck chuck at trader joes is probably not acceptable to bring to house parties anymore. what is the best way to get decent but affordable (under $10) wine? Costco, wine delivery program, go to a place like total wine, etc?

If you're looking to stock up then take advantage of rebates direct from the manufacturers. Google the brand and look for coupons and rebates. Total Wine is good. Also, always check with staff for discontinued stock. Supermarkets usually keep it marked down in a small shopping cart a few times a month with items half-price. Total Wine may also have clearance.

thanks. Are there any cheaper brands that are still good quality that you would recommend? I know its a subjective matter but I'm always curious how my taste matches up with others.

if you live in the northeast, the new Hampshire state liquor stores are the absolute best for price & variety. stacking monthly coupons or case discounts will sale items when they line up produces great results. take a trip to NH or Maine (there is a store that is its own rest stop on 95) and stock up for the year.

Wine is something I use for cooking mostly. This may be of some use - I googled: wine connoisseur best wines under 15, and came up with a lot of results. Truly if all else fails you can choose reasonably priced gifts.

Option 1) Create a housewarming registry anywhere you can - Target, Sur La Table - and see if it will let you add alcohol to the list. Anything not purchased from registries qualify for 20% after the date you set. I sometimes set one up to end in a week or a month just for the discount.

Option 2) Bed Bath Beyond, doesn't carry wine but constantly puts out 20% a single item coupons. They sell Lindt truffles, housewares, candles, etc... They also have registries and food can be added so it would be 20% plus you may be able to stack a coupon on top of that.

Option 3) A moderately priced local bakery. We even have a vegan bakery here that makes the most delicious muffins. Whatever the host enjoys and that's the point really. Anyone can take a bottle of wine but someone who brings something more personal like a bag of favored truffles... You score more points. Smilie

Do not join a wine delivery program. For under $10, you can grab "Bogle" from Costco. Decent wine. I have tried their Merlot, cabernet and chardonnay.
