Wines to Pair with "20 Gluten-free Slow Cooker Freezer Packs" at Wine4.Me/blog

As we’ve shared here before, wine should not be reserved just for special occasions, or even just for date night. So once again, we are working together with Erin Chase of $5 Dinners to help you enjoy wine with any dinner, even one prepared in a slow cooker. (See wines to pair with 20 meals for $150 using ingredients from Costco plan #1 and plan #2.)

Erin’s latest meal plan, 20 Gluten Free Slow Cooker Freezer Packs Using Ingredients from Costco for $150, is a super-simple cost-saving meal plan made for a family of four (the $150 does not include wine). The meal plan contains everything you need to purchase the ingredients and make the meals, including grocery lists and meal prep instructions . Wine4.Me has the food pairings in the app, or, if you haven’t downloaded Wine4.Me yet, you can simply use this shopping list.

Because Costco wine inventory varies by location, we do not have confirmation that these wines are available at your local Costco. However, all wines listed are widely available, so they should be pretty easy to find. And, to keep you within budget, almost all wines are priced between $8- $15.

If you’re interested in a printable version or want to download the list to your phone, we’ve created a PDF with recipe links and wine pairings. Download the PDF version here.

You can click the recipe titles below to view the recipe. Two of each recipe is made to equal a total of 20 meals.

    Are all the wines on this list gluten free as well as the meals?

    1. Linda Etherton 2 years ago

      Hi Rachel. Plain wine without any added flavors is generally considered gluten free. To our knowledge, all of the wines listed here are gluten free. If you have concerns, double check with the winemaker.

    Are the wines that you pair with the gluten-free meals also gluten-free?

    1. Linda Etherton 1 year ago

      If the wine does not have any added flavorings (and I don’t think any of our recommended wines do), then it is considered gluten free. Those with added flavoring may be gluten free but would need to be checked.
