Trader Joe's has long been the go-to for cheap, decent wines for those in the know, but Target's new line could draw some attention.</p><p> We grabbed some bottles of Target's new California Roots line and pitted them against similarly priced options from Trader Joe's. We were curious to see if Target could unseat the famed "Two Buck Chuck" from its perch atop the cheap wine throne.</p>

Every bottle of Target's California Roots wine is $5. It's an extremely, almost suspiciously fair price, though it is higher than Trader Joe's iconic "Two Buck Chuck" wines, which now go for $2.99 in most locations.
