2018 Valle Reale Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

This is the type of wine we are all on the look out for at Costco.  A solid red, from an underappreciated region, produced from organic grapes, with high ratings, at a great Costco price. That underappreciated region is Italy’s Abruzzo, which doesn’t get mainstream love like a Chianti or Super Tuscan, but it should …

2015 Kirkland Signature Series Brunello di Montalcino

The Kirkland Brunello is a welcome find when it hits Costco shelves, and it’s always nice to see the price stay consistent from the prior vintage at $26.99.  Like the Kirkland Chateauneuf-du-pape and Kirkland Barolo (both priced just a little lower), this bottle offers access to one of the top wine regions in the world …

2017 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Riserva

And…we have another popular Kirkland bottle hitting store shelves in a brand vintage: the dependable, but not unbelievable, Kirkland Chianti Riserva. The Kirkland Chianti is one of those mid-pack Kirkland wines that are priced right, they’re ok for an average meal or pizza night, but they just leave a little to be desired. Similar to …

2016 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Riserva

We always love to see the newest vintage of this Kirkland classic arrive in warehouses. Ironically, just a few months ago we saw an unexpected restock of the 2015 vintage in stores around the Atlanta area, which disappeared pretty fast. It goes to show, you just never know what you will find at Costco. Good …

2015 Castello di Albola Chianti Classico

Editor’s Note: Obviously, these are crazy times to be shopping at Costco, and every trip means braving long lines like we’ve never seen before. I’ve made a few trips to purchase wine (and other staples) but depending on how long this situation remains we might not be able to acquire wine regularly to maintain our …

2015 Kirkland Signature Barolo

Several readers alerted us last week that this new Kirkland offering was hitting Costco store shelves, and I was able to find it this weekend. The price for this Barolo is $19.99, which falls right in the ballpark where we see many higher end Kirkland wines (Pauillac Bordeaux, Chateauneuf, Brunello, Champagne).  In each case the …

2016 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva

This is an interesting vintage of a perennial favorite Costco wine. Also, one that tends to see a wide distribution, so hopefully readers will be able to find it in their local warehouse. Historically, this wine has been at Costco for under $20. The last vintage was $17.89, but this year we’re seeing a price …
