    This really is a budget question...I swear. LOL I am wanting to purchase a bottle of wine for around $30-$40 dollars preferrable at Sam's or Costco due to the fact I would get a great buy this way. Can anyone help me please.
    I am going to Key Largo in a week. I am staying in the Guest house of my friend's sister. I know her favorite wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon. I would like to buy a nice bottle for her as a Thank you gift for allowing me to stay at her home. I am thinking about $30-$40 dollars on a bottle. While I love Cabernet Sauvignon I have never spent that much on a bottle for myself to drink. I really need help with this purchase. I would love to buy a bottle from Sam's or Costco. That way the bottle I get would be an even better bottle of wine. Can anyone help me with this quest?

    Not sure if you have a winestyles anywhere near you but that is where we buy our wine. some of it I can find at costco but some of their wines are only made for winestyles. I have found some nice Chilean wines there that I have gotten rave reviews on. have a great time in the keys. we are headed down there next month!

    Have you been to Sam's or Costco to see what the selection is? I know that Sam's has had some in that range but I don't know what they have now. And if they've been rated Sam's sometimes has a little placard up.

    You might look around at some of the wine shops in your area. Often the proprietors there can help you find a great wine at a really great price that might be an even better wine for the money that what you could get at Sam's or Costco.
