We saw Walmart's cheap-o wine for $2.97 called Oak Leaf wine. We debated on whether we would end up pouring it down the drain, but apparently people like it. And it is winning contests....and people are choosing it over the $50 bottles. And it is getting gold stars.
The chardonnay won a gold medal at the 2008 S.F. Chronicle Wine Competition. The merlot & the cabernet savignon earned bronze medals. Who woulda thought? We have a bottle sitting in our fridge, but have yet to open it up.
