The Best Wines at Costco - The Reverse Wine Snob Picks!
Costco is the number one wine retailer in the U.S. and just one look at their low wine prices should tell you why!
The reason for those low prices is simply the tremendously slim margin they take thanks to their membership model. (Basically they make their money on membership fees allowing them to keep product prices, including those on wine, very low.) Their selection isn't the broadest but they do tend to bring in some nice wines, especially in the under $20 price point.
While most of their wines are available elsewhere (albeit at slightly higher prices) keep your eyes out for deals on lesser known wines as well. Inventory of wines will vary by market and even by store within market so at times you can find some low production wines available in individual markets. (And if you see them, grab them -- turnover is very high so what's there today could very well be gone tomorrow.)
Lastly, don't be afraid of their house brand, “Kirkland Signature” wines. These are extremely high quality wines made by excellent wineries exclusively for Costco. In fact, many times these are almost identical to wines sold under the wineries original label, at 50% or less of the price.
