Episode: The Seeker Malbec

This week, the second of our Seeker Wines episodes. We already tasted the Pinot Noir, now find out what we thought of the Malbec!

This Malbec is from the Andes Mountains in Argentina, and has been aged in French Oak for a year. You can feel good about yourself because the grapes are sustainably farmed, and the special lightweight glass is eco-friendly. And of course, you should always feel good about yourself because you’re drinking wine, and that’s kind of … Continue reading

Shaw Vineyard

We were super brave last night when we ventured out into the arctic 45 degree LA weather to go warm up at 55 Degree Wine, but we were really glad we did.  We had the opportunity to meet Steve Shaw, Jr. and taste the full lineup of wines that he produces with his father at Shaw Vineyard in The Finger Lakes region of New York.  Neither of us had ever tasted wine from this region, or knew a ton … Continue reading

New Episode! The Seeker Pinot Noir

Hey y’all! Trying out an adorable southern accent. Not working? Okay, fine. Hi guys.

Goal number one of our show has been accomplished! Free Wine. That’s right – we got sent wine to review, because we’re wine bloggers, and that’s how we do.

This week, we taste a pretty pink Pinot Noir from The Seeker Wines. This Pinot is from France, but they have a whole line of yummy (affordable) wines sourced from vineyards around the world. We are going … Continue reading

Holiday Special Episode: ChocoVine!

We hosted Thanksgiving this year, and as tradition dictated, there was enough turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green beans to absorb the many, many bottles of (cheap) wine that were consumed. Seriously, our recycling bin told a grim story the next morning.

By the time it was over, there was only one bottle standing — so we did what we had to.

If you’re in the mood for torture this holiday season, or want to passive-aggressively thrust this on your … Continue reading

Episode: Moscato Showdown

We’re so excited to have a special guest star on this week’s episode.  Ben Gigli from 5 Second Films came by the show to help us answer a viewer’s question: Do we have any Moscato recommendations?  Having never really drank this varietal before, the answer prior to this episode was simply, “no”.  So, we decided to do a little research and try a few out.  We discovered that Moscatos have become quite popular recently, mostly because rap and hip hop … Continue reading

Election Day Drink Specials

We love election day, because it always comes with a reason to drink. Celebration or drowning your sorrows…either way, the night calls for a glass (or five) of wine. In this case, democracy isn’t free – but that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive.

If you live in Los Angeles, here are a few places to check out tonight. Don’t forget to wear your “I Voted” sticker!

Bodega (Pasadena, Santa Monica) – 50% off bottles of red … Continue reading

Episode: La Finca Malbec

This week, watch for our thoughts on a pretty fabulous $3.99 Malbec from Argentina that came highly recommended from our friend Karina. At this price point, expectations were low, and this bottle was a very pleasant surprise. We also had a little fun exploring the connection between where you’re looking and what you’re tasting when you sip a new wine.

If you’re looking for a full-bodied red to enjoy with this colder weather, but don’t want to spend too much … Continue reading

Episode: Wooden Valley Red Table Wine

We did something a little different this week.  A friend and former co-worker of mine had told me about a bottle of wine she had sitting at home.  It was given to her as a gift 3 years ago, but the less-than-high-quality looking label caused her to not be very inspired to drink it.  So we did!

Needless to say, table wine probably shouldn’t be “aged” three additional years, so the results weren’t all that surprising.  I think if we … Continue reading

Episode: Blue Fin Pinot Noir

In this episode, we taste a $3.99 Pinot Noir from Blue Fin Winery that we picked up at Trader Joe’s.  This bottle was one of the first recommendations we received from a friend and viewer and we’re excited to have been able to try it!

Even though it looks a lot like a bottle of cheap wine on the surface (short, stout, and sans nubbin), we found that it was very smooth and easy to drink.  Not that we … Continue reading

Episode: Quail Oak Cabernet

This week on Cheap Wine Girls, we taste a $2.21 California Cabernet that is surprisingly drinkable and makes us long for the sunny days of Summer which already seem far behind us. Summer? Cabernet? Does that sound like on odd mix to you? Well, watch the show and see what you think…

The wine we’re drinking in the episode is a Quail Oak Cabernet. It is from California, and that is literally all the information it gave us on the … Continue reading
