Trader Joe’s just introduced a rosé under the Charles Shaw label, which most fans affectionately refer to as "Two-Buck Chuck." Ironically, the new Charles Shaw rosé does not actually cost $2, but it's only slightly more expensive at $3.99. The extra $2 might be worth spending, however, because this Charles Shaw wine is one of Trader Joe's first to be made with organic grapes.
According to a recent Fearless Flyer post on the Trader Joe's website, the grocery chain has released Charles Shaw Wines made with organic grapes in three different varietals, cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, and rosé. Trader Joe's says that customers have been asking for wines made with organic grapes for some time, which is why it worked closely with winemakers to deliver.
Since it's officially rosé season, many millennial's favorite time of year, we're most excited about the new organic Charles Shaw rosé, even if it's not $2. At $3.99, the wine is still less expensive than the most affordable rosé option we're aware of, Target's $5 California Roots rosé. Another thing the Charles Shaw rosé has going for itself is a twist-off, resealable cork. This shift in bottling makes the wine a convenient option for picnics or beach-drinking, two things that are definitely on our summer bucket lists.
Of course, price and convenience aren't the most important things when it comes to wine. The new rosé will have to taste good in order for us to choose it. It looks we'll be adding a Four Buck Chuck taste test to our summer bucket lists as well.
