Not surprisingly, some of the least expensive bottles of wine sold retail are found at Wal-Mart. At less than $3 per bottle, Wal-Mart stalwart Oak Leaf is one of the cheapest wines around.
LUCKY DUCK WINE
A close second, at less than $4 per bottle, is Lucky Duck brand wine, also sold at Wal-Mart.
But are these lower-priced wines worth drinking? For those of us seeking cheaper wine selections, the answer, sadly, is “No.”
Both Oak Leaf and Lucky Duck provide a sugary impact that closely resembles wine-infused Kool-Aid. While this may satisfy people who like very sweet wine, Oak Leaf and Lucky Duck may not please those who are looking for depth in their drink of the vine.
We remind you that when it comes to drinking lower-end wines, such as Oak Leaf and Lucky Duck, sipping a single glass might leave you headache-free in the morning. Consuming more than one glass of sugary wine, however, is akin to playing Russian Roulette with a wine bottle. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
