My homepage is Yahoo. Yeah, I know that’s bad and I know getting sidetracked on stupid articles wastes time. But I am going to reclaim some of that time right now. I am now going to use these open Sundays to Mock “The Man”. Any post that makes headlines that I can good naturedly mock is up for grabs:
Today’s target, Summer Wines Under $20, that just came across the Yahoo article board…
- First off, no one wants to view a slide show post. They want a list of 20 cheap wines as promised.
- Secondly, the wine afficionados will think all of these wines suck anyway and the cheap wine drinkers (like me) will think $20 is overpriced.
Here is the list that would have kicked butt…
5 Everyday Wines under $5
1. Barefoot Moscato
2. Little Black Dress Pinot Grigio
3. Lucky Duck Moscato
4. Voga Quattro (haven’t tried it yet, but awesome bottle)
5. Yellow Tail anything…
Bonus points, start the evening off with the $5 bottles and ease into the $3.50 bottles after the first one or two. You will be too tipsy to notice.
Another tip, some places like Kroger, will offer 10-15% discounts for buying multiple bottles at once. For example, my local Kroger immediately takes 10% off if you buy 6 bottles or more, so we stock up for potlucks once every month or two. And we get the same amount of dirty humor out of a $5 bottle of Lucky Duck Moscato as we did off the $16 bottles of Mondoro Asti Spumanti that I was buying last year.
Do you have any personal tips for cheap wine drinkers? How about cheap, sweet favorites since I definitely have a type?
