Re: Wal-Mart wines
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 retain chain is teaming up w/ E&J Gallo winery of Modesto, Calif., to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $2-5 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. She said, 'The right name is important.'
So, here we go: The top 12 suggested names for Wal-Mart wines:
12. Chateau Traileur Parc
11. White Trashfindel
10. Big Red Gulp
9. Grape Expectations
8. Domaine Wal-Mart 'Merde du Pays'
6. Chef Boyardeaux
5. Peanut Noir
4. Chateau des Moines
3. I Can't Believe It's Not Vinegar!
2. World Championship Riesling
And the number 1 name for Wal- Mart Wine...
1. Nasti Spumante
And who says they don't know wine in Arkansas?
