The Best Kirkland Signature Wines at Costco
Kirkland Signature is, of course, Costco's private label brand and whenever we discuss it we get asked two primary questions.
Why Are The Kirkland Signature Wines So Inexpensive?
Just like in many other product categories, these labels represent some of the best value in wine section.
Part of the reason for this is Costco's tremendously slim mark-ups - a maximum of around 15%. This holds true for the Kirkland Signature products as well which also have the advantage of a lower cost structure by cutting out the middleman.
While many falsely equate price with quality, we know better.
Who Makes The Kirkland Signature Wines?
The answer is that it varies, but generally the Kirkland wines are made by very reputable producers. While this info used to be kept hidden, more and more we are finding the producers, or at least the winemakers, right on the front or back label. A little googling from there fills in the rest. If this info is available, we include it in all our reviews below.
If the info isn't prominently displayed on the label, sometimes the small print gives it away -- look for the "Bottled by" info that is usually printed above the government warning.
And then there are the wines that require a bit more sleuthing. Check out our review of the Kirkland Signature Brunello to see how we determined that this wine was made by one of our favorite Brunello producers!
Answers to those questions out of the way, let's get to the wine shall we? And don't forget to check out our larger Costco list that includes many of the other wines you can find there besides these Kirkland Signature selections.
