We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their favorite cheap-ass wines. Here's what they had to say:

1. Barefoot Moscato, $6.99 in-store, $12.99 online.

Barefoot was by the far the most recommended brand by readers, with the Moscato variety edging out the Pinot Grigio. "Barefoot Moscato (the green one) — I could drink it by the bottle, it’s that good, which may or may not be a good thing." —chowdersoup

3. Winking Owl Moscato, $3 at Aldi U.S.

4. Aldi and Lidl wines in general, $4.50

The mainly European discount store (they have a handful of U.S. locations) is kind of like Trader Joe's, and like TJ's, they've got excellent cheap wine. "Anything Lidl or Aldi. You can get really excellent wines for under a fiver. I bought one that I think was £3 and looked really posh. I took it to a dinner party (hey, it looked more expensive than it was) and I kid you not it was the best wine there. I know this because I tried them all." —Sarah Rowlands, Facebook
