so last night i hung out at a friend's place and she had this awful wine that came in a jug. It was terrible, now I understand college and cheap wine, but please people that stuff's undrinkable. Plus it was pink, and I've never liked the taste of pink wine.
I actually had a visceral reaction to reading this! My ex-roommate is Greek and brought me back a Greek white that was probably the worst wine I've ever tasted. It tasted EXACTLY like a pine tree air freshener. I was subsequently told that I had not gotten a skunked bottle, but that it was actually supposed to taste like that.
Retsina is DISGUSTING!
Veuve Clicquot yellow label is my favorite reasonably priced "champagne". Sparkling reds get a roll of the eyes from a lot of people, but I love Lambrusco.
I've been getting into Proseccos more recently, but check out this champagne. IMHO, it blows Veuve and Dom Perignon out of the water, and it costs $45.
