The Windfall Varietal is a self-released album by American indie rock band Grandaddy, released in 2000. It first became available on their tour with Elliott Smith, beginning in October 2000.

The album initially was sold only at shows, but was withdrawn from sale over issues concerning the final track, "Alan Parsons in a Winter Wonderland", which the band did not have full permission to release. The track was later released as a promotional single and can also be found on the XFM benefit compilation, It's a Cool, Cool Christmas for which it was first recorded. The band claims that only a couple of thousand copies were sold. The songs on the album were recorded between 1993 and 2000.
