Wine List

2 02 2008

OK, one more post for today. I’ve had this bookmarked in my favorites now for a while and I’ve been meaning to get it posted to this blog. Since I live in wine country up here in Leelanau, this is appropriate for you lovers of the grape to consider. Which one is your favorite???

ASSOCIATED PRESS RELEASE (ripped off from THIS web site)

PLANT CITY, FL (AP) – Some Wal-Mart customers soon will be able to sample a new discount item — Wal-Mart’s own brand of wine. The world’s largest retail chain is teaming up with E&J Gallo Winery of Modesto, Calif., to produce the spirits at an affordable price; in the $6-8 range. While wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a market for cheap wine, said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I., “There is wine in a box that people are willing to buy,” she said, “….the right name is important.”

The top 15 suggested names for Wal-Mart Wine:

15. Box O’ Grapes
14. Chateau Traileur Doublewide
13. White Trashfindel
12. Big Red Gulp
11. Grape Expectations
