5 Reasons Why We Focus on Trader Joe's and Whole Foods

People always ask us: “Why do you review wines from only Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods?” Although it’s a little weird to just focus on two stores, if you think about the reasons below, our decision makes good sense:

What to do Without a Date on Valentine's Day

Not everyone has a hot date to celebrate with on Valentine’s Day (Ted and I are both single and dateless.. hint hint). But this doesn’t mean you can’t have fun on February 14th. In Bulgaria, Feb. 14th is Trifon Zarezan, or Wine-Grower’s Day. It’s a big party, so don’t hole-up in your apartment all alone on Thursday. Get out there and celebrate great wine!!

2 Guys Uncorked and We Are Not Martha have put together a great evening that’s full of food, friends and laughter… and booze. Lots of booze.

Wine and Dine your Valentine

February 14th is a pretty tricky day. Some people have hot dates they need to impress. Other people have feelings they need to repress. Either way, 2 Guys Uncorked and We Are Not Martha have teamed up to create a special dinner for you.

2 Guys Down Under - New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs (Part 1)

Over the past 20 years, wine production in the Southern Hemisphere has blown up. Australia and New Zealand recognized this trend early and have seen massive success (who hasn’t had Yellowtail or Cloudy Bay?). So, given all this hype, 2 Guys Uncorked brings you a multi-part series on “Down Under.” This week, 2GU looks at New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.

Winning Wines for the Superbowl

Chances are, you’re going to a Superbowl get-together this weekend. Some people go for the game, others go just to hang out with friends. Either way, bringing a bottle of wine is a good call.

This week, 2 Guys Uncorked reviewed wines that go great with Superbowl XLII. These wines are big, bold and perfect for pizza, burgers, chili and buffalo wings (my personal favorite).

Price Matters: People Enjoy a $10 Wine More When they are Told it is $90

A joint study by Stanford Business School and the California Institute of Technology came out this month. Its topic: Whether the price of a wine can affect the taster’s level of enjoyment. Turns out, price matters.

Top 7 Sparkling Wine Terms

Sparkling wine labels are full of terms that can be a little confusing. So here are 7 terms and definitions that can help you find what you are looking for:

Sparkling Wine Reviews to Celebrate the Launch of 2 Guys Uncorked!

After a heck of a lot of work, 2 Guys Uncorked launched. It was time for Ted and Jon to celebrate! So, we bought 4 bottles of American sparkling wine. 3 bottles from California and 1 from Washington State.


I’m Jonathan Harriman, co-founder of 2 Guys Uncorked. Seven months ago, Ted and I were brainstorming. We wanted to help our friends and family find great wines, but everyone was spread out across the nation. So we found the common link: Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. There is a TJ’s or WFs in every major metropolitan area in the US. Even better, their wine selections are pretty consistent between locations. 2 Guys Uncorked was born!
