Mikey1969: Then you're not doing it right... I don't even drink wine, and I know that people try wines they've never heard of before because of the winery, the style, the ingredients, the awards it may have won, all kinds of stuff, but not the frigging label.

Apparently you've never been to a store with a good selection of wine, or at least never looked around one. Talking 100+ brands, which would put 30+ in the $8-18 range dv-ous mentioned. Really, you're going to expect someone to know that many brands offhand, half of which will be from Europe, Australia, or South America, while new brands are coming and going every few weeks? Do your friends want validation from experts before they'll even touch it?

Wine is hardly special, once you're familiar it can be just as much an impulse buy item as anything else in the store. I've found great stuff cheap with random buys.

Sure, the label is supposed to catch your eye, but judging a wine based solely on the label is gonna have you drinking Thunderbird and Mad Dog 20/20 just as soon as they hire a new marketing firm.

Don't forget that he's also partly judging it on price. MD20/20 isn't exactly $8-18 a fifth.

RealAmericanHero: Ensayia: Then I would put it down and move on. Wine is gross.

What? It's essentially the only form of alcohol that doesn't taste like it was fermented in a vat spiced with rags which were infused with the greases of a hobo's ass.

I'll never understand the beer lovers and the people that insist any sort of liquor can taste like anything other than reeking bum sweat or gasoline.

Don't feel bad; a lot of idiots have trouble understanding other people.
