Powerful Wines

By Brianna Duncan-Dieujuste

After a long week full of classes, internships and jobs, the best way to wind down is with a glass of wine. While wine nights are essential to any GNI (girl’s night in), they can also become pretty expensive when you’re on a part-time internship budget. To prepare you for the next time you have to host the next event with all of your friends, check out one of these wines that pack a powerful (but cheap) punch.


You can’t go wrong with a light and refreshing Rosé. This subtly sweet and millennial pink drink is the perfect addition to accompany any cheese platter. Côtes de Provence may sound fancy, but this bottle comes in at only $8 and can be found at Aldi.


Celebrate your 21st birthday the classy way with this champagne from Trader Joe’s. No need to go all out and buy an expensive bottle. This champagne will have you feeling like a true adult at half the price for only $10.


Spice up your favorite sangria recipe with this German wine blend for under $5. The fruity and sparkling flavors will have you dreaming of summer and afternoons by the pool.

All the Two Buck Chuck

While there is so much to love about Trader Joe’s, one their greatest gifts has to be the Two Buck Chuck. For just $2 you and your friends can be sipping on a glass of red (or white) to end the night.   

If you’re on a college budget, or not, these wines are the perfect powerful additions to any night.
