Mass Quantities of Wine

It's a long story (and really not worth talking about at this point!) but we have to buy wine for our rehearsal dinner next Friday night.  The goal is to have the biggest bottle or quantity of wine in one container to tap, as possible.

  When you have to pay a ridiculous corking fee per bottle, you'd find your biggest, tastiest bottle too, haha.

So, tell me where you've gotten big quantities of wine, the best wine to get in a big bottle for white and red or any other suggestions you may have!  I know Trader Joe's has reasonable wine but they don't have big bottles and I know that Total Wine would be good too but they may be pricer.  Also anyone had any luck with Sam's being cheaper than TJ's or TW?  I'm at a loss and Kevin and I have some work to do this weekend on it.  

I'd love yall's advice!

I'm going to email you about this. Our neighbor's swear about this one wine and it's fairly cheap. I have had it and it's not bad but I don't remember the name. No matter what you do you should buy it all at Frugal MacDougal's down by Carowinds. The liquor tax is cheaper down there.

I think Rex Goliath comes in the larger sized bottles, and is actually pretty decent for a lower-priced wine. Also, if the Frugal MacDougal's Dee mentioned is like the one in Nashville, they will accept returns (and give you your $$ back) on any unopened wine bottles, which is nice - if you have any left over! :)

Now granted, this was 7 years ago, but we had to buy all of our own beer & wine for our reception and we got it all at Costco. I don't remember how they compared to other prices but it worked out well for us. I'm so excited for you guys!

Get a boxed wine, that way there's no cork. ;-)

We bought our alcohol for our wedding too and got it at Costco like Melissa. Big bottles and decent prices!
