Five Oaks Vineyards Chardonnay from California is an inexpensive very middle of the road good buy. With the cost of all wines going up this Chardonnay is definitely worth the $3 dollar price tag.
This Chardonnay is a medium body slightly sweet, though not too much, with an impressive finish. It is suprisingly well balanced for such a reasonably priced wine.
This Chardonnay is vinted and bottled by Five Oaks Vineyards, Modesto, California. Give it a try next time your budget is telling you not to spend much on a bottle of wine.

Name: Ron widgren | Comment: Bought the Five Oaks Merlot. Unless this is just a bad bottle I found this wine to be very bitter and biting. I have tried a lot of off brand wines and this is the worst merlot i have ever tasted. Hope the other types I bought are better. wish this came with a refund because I ended up dumping it down the drain.

Name: Sorrel | Comment: I too came across this brand at my local Rite Aid chain. However, I passed it up on more than one occasion simply because it was so inexpensive (silly, I know). My curiosity finally overwhelmed me, which led to purchasing and partaking in the Shiraz. I was simply floored. This Shiraz by far beats its inexpensive (and a few overpriced) counterparts. I was surprised to find it to be associated with Gallo ( a wine I am not so fond of). I often partake in very expensive wines with some of my wine enthusiast family members (I personally prefer a wine that doesn't break the bank). I am happy to say that I took some bottles of Five Oaks Shiraz and Pinot Grigio to a family gathering, the Shiraz was opened and aired and enjoyed after a bottle of my brothers very expensive Cabernet Sauvignon, yet it was the Five Oaks Shiraz that was raved about. I loved seeing his jaw drop when I filled him in on the "wine shop" I purchased this gem at, not to mention the $3 price tag. Of course this wine is not something I would present as a gift or open in celebration of a very special occasion. However, I do indeed stock my home with Five Oaks for hot summer BBQ's, evenings on the deck with good friends, and cool nights around the fireplace. I will definitely take advantage of the Rite Aid price as long as it lasts. Go ahead and give it a try, even if it doesn't excite your palate, it's just a measly $3. (To Ron, I have yet to purchase the Merlot, I think after your review I will avoid it as to not tarnish my current fondness I have for this brand, thanks for the forewarning).

Name: Jacob Comment: I am a Pinot Grigio fan and thoroughly enjoy the Five Oaks Vineyards Pinot Grigio as does my friend their Chardonnay. Rite Aid, nationally, may have a contract with them to buy all their wine production, which may be why we can't find it anywhere else. I don't see Gallo mentioned on the bottle. If Gallo was involved, wouldn't that fact have to be mentioned on the bottle?
