Walmart Is Selling This Award-Winning Wine for $7

You can now get one of the world’s best wines at Walmart for a mere $7.

La Moneda Reserva—the award-winning Chilean Malbec wine—is set to arrive at 500 different Walmart stores across the nation. Earlier this year, the Malbec won the “platinum best in show” award at the Decanter World Wine Awards, a prestigious wine competition. The cheap wine also beat out 16,000 others in a blind taste test, winning the “2015 Best Red Single-Varietal Under £15” as well.

Judges reportedly loved the Malbec for its “freshly crushed black fruit, creamy vanilla yoghurt, and pepper spice,” and also said it “presented an excellent freshness.” According to Walmart, it’s best when paired with barbecued meats, lamb, pork, and dark chocolate.


Before now, the award-winning wine was exclusively offered at the British supermarket chain Asda, a subsidiary of Walmart (WMT), for about $6.29 (£4.37). And since Thrillist reported that the wine promptly sold out at Asda grocery stores after it received the awards, you better act fast: The wine will only be available while supplies last, according to Walmart.
