Miraval Rosé, Cotes de Provence, France

  • Price: $19.99

“This is a delicious French rosé and a great option for under $20,” Clark said. “It’s crisp, not too sweet and is an all-around crowd pleaser. This bottle received 91 points from Wine Enthusiast.”

Stag’s Leap Chardonnay, Napa Valley, California

  • Price: $16.99

“This is a super buy for a bottle under the Stag’s Leap label,” Clark said. “Their wines are reliably fantastic; and, in 2019, the Stag’s Leap Chardonnay got 94 points from James Suckling.”

Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County, California

  • Price: $14.99

“For $15, I think this cab offers a nice full body and a soft finish,” Clark said. “This bottle got 92 points from James Suckling. We see this bottle at restaurants for $14 a glass here in Los Angeles.”

Kirkland Signature Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California

  • Price: $18.99

“I don’t think any discussion of Costco wine can’t include their Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon,” said Mark Aselstine, founder of Wine Club Reviews. “This is where you can really see how valuable the Costco discount can be. The winemaker is Glenn Hugo, [whose] main job is at Girard Winery. The cabernet sauvignon at Costco will put you back right about $20. At Girard, the cheapest Napa cabernet is $40.”

Kirkland Signature Gigondas, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France

  • Price: $14.89

“This goes for around $15 a bottle and went viral in an article from The Kitchn,” said Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com. “If you enjoy red wine, you’ll likely enjoy this one. It’s perfect for just sipping a glass at the end of the day, or having with a rich pasta or braised meat dish.”

Tropical Passion Fruit Moscato, Muscat, Italy

  • Price: $9.99

“It might be difficult to find this one right now in the midst of [fall], but if you can, it’ll give you a taste of summer for around $10 a bottle,” Ramhold said. “As a moscato, it’s on the sweeter side, so it’s perfect for having with fruit for a light dessert after dinner.”

Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages, Cotes du Rhone, France

  • Price: $6.99

“This red blend is highly rated — and gaining a lot of attention so it may be hard to find,” Ramhold said. “But if you can, expect to pay around $7 a bottle. It would be perfect for pasta dishes or as an accompaniment to a dark chocolate dessert.”

Kirkland Signature Asolo Prosecco, Veneto, Italy

  • Price: $6.99

“You can go for Champagne at Costco if you want; but, for my money, I’d rather have prosecco,” Ramhold said. “This sparkling alternative to Champagne is a little sweet, but not overly so in my opinion. And at around $7 a bottle, it’s perfect for celebrations.”

Kirkland Signature Chablis Premier Cru, Burgundy, France

  • Price: $19.99

“The Kirkland Signature Chablis Premier Cru is one of the greatest deals you can buy at Costco,” said Jonathan Grøn, owner of the product review site OwlRatings. “For $19.99, you can’t get a better value than this wine, which includes top-notch chardonnay grapes. The scent of this wine is citrus fruit with notes of lemon, grapefruit and green apple. It has good acidity, minerality and a light body. It has plenty of taste, with a robust finish and an excellent tartness. Overall, this is a wonderfully clear chardonnay — exactly what chablis is known for.”
