Valentine’s Day: Top 10 Wines Under $30


Listen– I LOVE me some wine, and of course being the bargain barbie that I am, I refuse to pay over $30 for a good wine. In fact, everything on this list is below $15 except for one that I indulge in when I’m feeling real FANCY! I’m more of a red girl, as you’ll be able to tell from the list, but I also appreciate a good Prosecco and Sauvignon Blanc.

Almost all of the wines can be found at Total Wine, which is my absolute FAVORITE place to shop for wine. They have a wide selection of wines, spirits, and beers and a ton of locations around the US. The staff is well educated to help you find any and everything you’re looking for, and they also have tastings daily. And the cherry on top? It’s all FREE! I’ve discovered a lot of my favorite wines shopping here, so they really hold a special place in my heart. Okay enough talking, lets get to why we’re here…ENJOY!

    Perfect timing for Valentine’s Day! I have yet to check out Total Wine but after seeing this, I definitely will! I normally shop at Trader Joe’s for wine-they have a fantastic bottle of red table wine for under $7!

    Love it!! I learned about ‘Low Hanging Fruit’ from Jalisa a while ago and it is a great go-to for the “I’m chilling at my girl’s crib, Netflix/Hulu & chill, or hell, I’m chilling by myself…. this week was long so I want some good wine this Friday” type of nights! It is not too sweet or too bitter. I recently got this for my friend’s bridal shower and it was a hit for those that did not prefer the sweetness of Stella Rosa! #TreatYoSelf #TreatYoGirl lol
