I use to NEVER drink!! Only until I met my huband did I start to really see what I liked. I have really become a wine lover : ) I usually just try different ones because of the label!! I now have a list (app) on my phone for the ones that I really like!! Just a few suggestions: Bonterra Chardonnay - Organic $8.99 at Costco : ) also at Costco is the Kirkland Sonoma County Chardonnay & Pinot are good too. At Walmart there is Lucky Duck I think it is $4.98 I really like that one too!!
