the weather's awful and I need cooking wine!

nooodles | Jan 5, 2005 10:58 PM

Where in SF can I get some cheap cooking wine? I hate to pour 2 cups of $20 wine into home cooking, even though I know you're supposed to "cook with the wine you drink."

Are there some good options at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods for $5-10? I always see some for $5.99 but don't want to be buying something completely undrinkable.

The wines I usually need to cook with are a red for red sauces, a dry white for seafood sauces, and a marsala.
