When summer weekends hit, we sometimes like to trade in our kombucha and flavored seltzer for a few glasses of wine. Just in time for the hottest days of the year, Whole Foods is on a mission to quench your thirst and lift your spirits in the face of the dreaded midsummer slump.
The grocery store chain announced in a press release that several wines from its list of “Sommelier Selects,” a collection of seasonal picks by Whole Foods’ Master Sommelier Devon Broglie, will be on sale for 20 percent off the regular retail price from Friday, July 21, through Sunday, July 23. That’s right — this weekend only, you’ll be able to snag a bottle of rosé, sparkling wine, or summery red for as low as $8. According to the release, the priciest offerings on the list will top out around $20 — still a respectable price for a nice bottle of wine — and a 1.5 liter magnum of rosé will cost “just over $20.”
The “Sommelier Selects” collection “pairs exceptionally well with classic flavors of the season and highlights leading wine trends like chillable reds and high-quality canned wines,” according to the chain. The list includes a chardonnay from Seattle-based canned wine company West Side Wine Co., the apricot- and peach-forward Vacanze Italiane Prosecco and a magnum of Charles & Charles Rosé, as well as a wide selection of fridge-ready reds like the Santa Julia Tintillo red blend, Loire Valley–based Lieubeau’s Cabernet Franc and the Italian Planeta Winery’s “rare and exclusive” Frappato.
The sale is a serious win for anyone who likes to imbibe occasionally but doesn’t want to spend major cash, or even make a trip to the liquor store. If you’re looking for a delicious bargain outside of this weekend, here are 11 bottles of rosé under $20 that SELF editors love, plus 9 canned wines actually worth drinking at your next picnic. For now, though, your best bet is scheduling a trip to your local Whole Foods.
