Dan the Wine Man: Two Buck Chuck: what to try, what to skip

January 28, 2020

As I efficiently slalomed the aisles of Napa's Trader Joe's last week, my eyes stopped at the Charles Shaw "wall" in the back-left corner of the store. I noticed a couple of things. First, the price. For the first time since 2013, the price in California is $1.99. The return of honest-to-goodness "Two Buck Chuck" happened quietly in December. I wonder how long it will last: My money is on it staying at $1.99 for the next two years.
