As you may know, Costco is one of my favorite places to shop when looking for great wine at a great price. On one particular trip (another one in which I was only supposed to be purchasing food), I met a gentleman who shared my same passion. He mentioned to me that he had once owned a wine shop, but it had since closed. Upon sharing ideas about some of our Costco favorites, I noticed that he had placed several Kirkland Signature wines in his cart. Kirkland Signature wines are Costco brands. Brands that I never considered trying before. The gentleman picked up a bottle of Kirkland Chardonnay and said, “If you are looking for a really good, reasonably priced Chardonnay, this is a great bet.” I’ll admit that I have passed up Kirkland Signature time and time again. Not necessarily on purpose. It’s just that when I shop at Costco, I am looking for quality brands that I am familiar with and looking to get for a great price. This was actually the first time I had anyone to mention Costco brand wines at all. So, I decided to give the gentlemen’s recommendation a try. I am happy to say, it was an excellent choice. Kirkland Signature consists of a portfolio of wine, beer and spirits. I am looking forward to trying other wines at my next visit!
