Wal Mart Wine
BENTONVILLE, ARK (AP) -- Some Walmart customers soon
will be able to sample a new discount item: Walmart's own
brand of wine.
The world's largest retail chain is teaming up
with E&J Gallo Winery of Modesto,California, to produce the
spirits at an affordable price, in the $2-5 range.
While wine connoisseurs may not be too inclined to throw a bottle of Walmart
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 Walmart Wine:& nbsp;
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
The beauty of Wal-Mart wine is that it can be served with
white meat (Possum) and red meat (squirrel).
