What do you recommend?
The last time i had to buy a quantity of white wine for an informal party i was able to snag some Sterling Chardonnay at about $5/ bttl.
Those days are long gone.
I figure TJs is probably going to be my best bet, but anywhere near LAX will work.
I'm lost in the white wine aisle. . . .
BigWoodenSpoon, what d'ya think i should get?
My favorite "inexpensive" crowd pleaser is the Villa Cerena Chardonnay/Pinot Grigio (60/40):$3.99.
Enough Chardonnay to give things a little structure, enough Pinot Grigio to bring out some friuty tones. Very tasty for the price point. Don't buy any of the CA blends, they'll be too sweet.
The TJ's Petite Reserve Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands :$5.99 or $6.99 was one of the better Chards I've had of late but if you can find the St. Lukes Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand) $5.99, I'd buy that one instead. A nice meeting of New Zealand & French styles.
