There’s Now A ‘Two Buck Chuck’ Rosé At Trader Joe’s

It's from Charles Shaw, AKA the brand that's famous for its "two buck Chuck" wine!

Target is not the only retailer hoping to cash in on people’s love of inexpensive pink wines! In addition to Target’s $5 California Roots wine brand, you may want to consider Trader Joe’s new, affordable dry rosé from Charles Shaw — AKA the brand that is famous for its “two buck Chuck” wine. A bottle of Charles Shaw rosé will set you back only $3.99 per bottle.

“Two buck Chuck” has been available in Trader Joe’s stores since 2002. This spring, Charles Shaw branched out into California wines made with 100 percent organic grapes, called Shaw Organic Wine, which include Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, and the rosé.

According to some early reviews, the rosé tastes different from the original wines — possibly even better! So even if you’re not one of the millions of fans of the original “two buck Chucks,” you might still want to give these new “four buck Chucks” a taste test. While they cost double the price of the originals, they are still a heck of a deal.

My Review Of The Charles Shaw 2017 California Rosé

I don’t typically drink Charles Shaw wines, but I tasted this rosé and give it a thumbs-up. While it’s not on the same level as a fancy rosé from France, it’s crisp, not too sweet and doesn’t have a metallic aftertaste or other funky traits that generally make someone think of a wine as “cheap.” Fans of other dry and affordable rosés will probably enjoy drinking this one, too.

If you plan to “rosé all day” this summer, you might want to add a bottle or two of Shaw Organic Wine rosé to your shopping list!
