Red Wine at Costco Australia

I love a nice red to go with just about anything. Costco has a good range of red wines that their wine buyers spend their time reviewing and selecting to whittle section down to some of the best they can get their hands on at the right price. Now granted this is no Dan Murphy’s or First Choice Liquor when it comes to range, but they make up for that with great quality wines at what are typically the best prices.

Here is a list of red wines that Costco have in stock. This list is not comprehensive and some of the lines don’t last long. In fact we bought a 3 pack of Bordeaux reds a couple of weeks ago for around the $37 mark and they were well and truly sold out when I returned 5 days later. All bottles in the list are 750ml unless otherwise noted.

Note: ‘Price check’ is based on the single bottle cost shown on the competitor’s website for the identical vintage unless noted. Remember that Dan Murphy’s and First Choice also offer 5% off mixed dozens, although I am sure you will often find that they still don’t come under Costco’s price with their discounts.
