Don’t Whine! Trader Joe’s Says Cost Of ‘Two Buck Chuck’ Is Going Up

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — You won’t be able to call it “Two Buck Chuck” much longer.

Trader Joe’s has announced the price of its most-affordable wine is going up.

In California stores, the bottle of wine that cost just under $2 for the past eleven years, will now cost around $2.50.

That’s still a bargain, considering the inexpensive vino often wins taste tests against wines that cost many times more.

The wine, also known by a few consumers by its more classy name — Charles Shaw Wine — costs as much as $3.79 in other states — thanks to distribution costs and taxes.
