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: Sam | Comment: The cabernet and shiraz are also very good wines. The best we've found in this price range. We think it even beats 'Two Buck Chuck' from Trader Joe's and we've been a fan of it for years. I also wonder if another vineyard is bottling this to attract a certain market while also bottling better, more expensive wines.

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: Renee Comment: Good buy for someone looking for an inexpensive wine. A lot cheaper than going out to a wine bar and paying $7 for a glass of wine not much better than this one.

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?

Mon Jan 11, 2016 5:44 pmChuck,

Here is some information from an excellent source in Florida; since I do not know where you live in Florida hope this helps.

plenty of our grocery stores sell wine.. Publix, Winn Dixie, even Walmarts.... then we do have liquor stores like ABC Liquors... some drug stores i believe sell as well... like Walgreens and CVS... hope that helps...

Name: cms Comment: Someone got me this Chardonnay as a gift, and while I appreciate the gesture, this is awful. Just terrible. I am a seasoned chardonnay drinker, and I am about to open a different bottle because of how bad this stuff is.
