Sam’s Club wines – TODAY.com

If you’re getting ready to stock up on wines for summer, there’s a new player in the grocery-store and wholesale-club wine wars.

Sam’s Club is stepping up its new private-label wine production, soon adding two additional varieties to its six-month-old line of its Member’s Mark wines.

Right now, Sam’s Club has four private wines on shelves — Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and a red blend — and will be coming out with a Prosecco and a bottled sangria soon. The best part: they’re all super inexpensive and sell in the $8 to $10 range so far.

“Our members are smart and know they don’t have to pay a pretty penny for a great bottle of wine. All of our wines are created by award winning wineries — from California to Italy, Germany to Spain, our wine buyer has high standards and you can count on Member’s Mark wine to impress,” the spokesperson said.

Clearly, there’s competition out there: Costco sells about $1 billion in wine a year, making it one of the largest wine retailers in the world, and Trader Joe’s has a famous following for those seeking out its bargain-find wine gems.
