So my parents are taking up wine drinking, kinda. The doc is encouraging it to replace the one-beer-per-day that Dad has since wine is reputed to be healthier. That and since Mom's allowed too, there they go. Now here's the thing, they're not about to go full fledged wine experts and I know fully that they wouldn't ever like any dry wines. So I recommended a few reasonably priced sweet and dessert wines to get them going like Pacific Rim Riesling and an orange muscat wine that I like. I don't drink much wine (or other booze) myself and I don't like dry ones either. They went by my recommendation and so far like what they've tried. For the full health benefit, I'll have to wean them over to red wines (starting with encouraging them to make a sangria with a decent red instead of buying the pre-made stuff)
My brother, also no wine expert, told my parents that they should go find one of his favorites - Canei. I chuckled because hell, back in the 80s, it was cheap stuff. Basically it's the soda pop of wine. Emily had never heard of Canei so I went looking for the commercial - behold the oh so classy ad
I googled and evidently you can find it...somewhere...and it runs about $7 for a regular bottle or $12 for one of them thar big bottles. It also amuses me that on their site
it says that it "is made of various sorts of grapes." lol Really? Eh, whatever was on sale at the Sav-a-Lot, I'm sure.
Oh and they have an updated ad - evidently nowadays it's popular in places like Harlem. Heh.
Anyway, now I have an earworm that's stuck in my head. Not the Canei ad, but from what was under it on YouTube. Remember Riunite from the same era of cheap "various grapes" wine? And now I'll get it stuck in yours - MUAHAAHAA
Ah yes, I do often fret about what wine to have with my Taco Bell. Now I know! In case you're wondering - yep, they're still around too.
Even cheaper than Canei.
