Yes, I know what you're all thinking... where's the Gallo with the thumb handle?

Better add something upscale for the true connoisseurs - I suggest Arbor Mist.

Ooohh—Night Train Express! I remember buying that for a dollar a bottle back in the seventies. Is it still as "good" as it was back then?

Ripple = Gallo
This is the ripple I remember.
Nasty stuff.
Some people didn't consider it good enough for a bong.



How about some Mateus (still made as far as I know)


I remember a Napa Sonoma Mendocino Tabe Wine that was pretty bad in the 70ies, too.



Joe Namath and Orson Welles used to plug for Paul Masson that wasn't too good.

Oh, there is really a world of difference between some of the brands in the first post. Very few of the older hardcore alcoholics that I first recognized would buy Boone's Farm if MadDog was in stock, but it was what a lot of pre-alcoholics in high school seemed to drink.

Trader Joes announced in recent flyer that it has sold 600 million bottles of "Chuck" in ten years.
Our college day volume vine was Red Mountain in the gallon bottle. It was liquid headache. Silver Satin and Mogen David were excellent at this also. We were transported to quality by "Joes" decent quality buyouts for as little as 99 cents.

Mateus is actually a half-decent wine, maybe made less sweet these days. I was surprised. and I'm sort of a wine snob.

In the 1960's there were many occasions for me to partake of Mateus Rose
with dark loaves of bread and cheese.
In the day it did work *(:>* Nor am i a wine snob . . . I hope *(:>*
I have learned to appreciate the textures in my old age and I am drinking wine for the
enhancement of foods more now. In the 1960's it was in vogue, bread, cheese and wine

I tried some that was in a clear bottle in Sao Miguel. It had a rather strong taste of maraschino cherries , was rather sweet and quite sparkling.
Maybe OK on a real hot Summer day, it wasn't for me.
slightly sweet sparkling wine are supposedly popular so what do I know.

Hey, back in my art school days, Mateus was the stuff you drank to show you knew something about good wine.




Boy we were stupid back then.

I've made my own wine.
I've had a few really bad batches.
They sucked.
Drinkable is a cut above that.

You've heard the expression " a face only a mother could love "?
Batches of your own wine can be the same way.


I've seen some people rather proud of some rather bad ones. Myself included.

I've made some bad ones.
The kind that deserve the suck label.

The kind that get poured into the compost and even the animals steer clear. :-)

I still occasionally find wine at the dollar store. A dollar a bottle but they limit you to a case a day. They're standard 750ml bottles with corks. It has all been very drinkable.
