Man How I love Trader Joe's and Wine!!!

If you have never been to a Trader Joes (TJ's) then you are missing out!! They are a reasonably priced health and organic food store chain that carries a variety of food and wine from all over the globe. I have to limit myself to going there to about once a month or we would never have any money left in out bank account.

Besides food, they have a great selection of pretty reasonable wines most 10.00 or less. I just purchased an italian white semi-sparkling wine called Lambrusco. It is amazing!!! I love wine, but tend to lean towards the sweeter side of things. This is one of my new favorites. It has a medium sweetness and a smooth finish. Another great one is Muscat if you like sweet and Early Muscat if you like really sweet. One thing that helps me allot when I am wine shopping is asking someone who works in that area for suggestions. Tell them what you generally like or just ask for their favorites. If you want to be extra adventurous, just pick the bottle with the best label and hold on to your taste buds....
