When it comes to trusting someone with recommendations, one group stands out – Trader Joe’s employees. Known for their friendly demeanor and helpful attitude, they often guide customers to hidden gems. So, when they suggest a wine, it’s worth heeding their advice.

Selecting wines is a serious affair for me. While not a wine connoisseur, I never leave Trader Joe’s without a bottle of their wine. This week, I consulted five employees from a Chicago-based store to reveal their favorite Trader Joe’s wines. Here are five affordable wines they swear by:

1. Phigment Red Blend

This quality red blend priced at just $5.99 took me by surprise. It’s a full-bodied, easy-to-drink wine that I’ve now made a staple for my summer indulgences.

2. Bread & Butter Chardonnay

Chardonnay enthusiasts will adore this bold variant with hints of butterscotch, lemongrass, and vanilla, offering a luxurious experience.

3. La Sonriente Spanish Red Wine

This Spanish red wine, a favorite among TJ’s patrons, boasts a delightful taste and an unbeatable price, making it suitable for any occasion.

4. Porta 6 Red Blend

This complex yet sweet red blend at an affordable $5.99 features smooth tannins, striking the perfect balance without overwhelming bitterness.

5. Monique Cellars Sauvignon Blanc

This light and citrusy Sauvignon Blanc, with an attractive label, is a refreshing and affordable choice for enjoying during the summer months.
