    Wal-Mart in the U.S. announced that sometime in 2011, it will begin offering
    customers a new discount item --its own store-brand of wine.
    The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with Ernest & Julio Gallo
    Winery of California to produce the wine at an affordable price in the $2
    00-$3.50 range.

    Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to put a bottle of Wal-Mart brand into
    their shopping carts, but "there is a huge market for inexpensive wine,"
    said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at the University of Arkansas,
    and the right name is important."

    Customer surveys were conducted to determine the most attractive name for
    the Wal-Mart wine brand. The top surveyed names in order of popularity were:

    10. Chateau Traileur Parc
    9. White Trashfindel
    8. Big Red Gulp
    7. World Championship Riesling
    6. NASCARbernet
    5. Chef Boyardeaux
    4. Peanut Noir

    3. I Can't Believe it's not Vinegar

    2. Grape Expectations
    1. Nasti Spumante

    The beauty of Wal-Mart Wine is that it can be served with either white meat
    (Possum) or red meat (Squirrel).

    P.S. Don't bother writing back that this is a hoax. I know possum is not a
    white meat.

    Bulge, the first part of the 12 step program is admitting you have a problem

    Humor aside, WAL-MART does have its own brand of inexpensive wine -- OAK LEAF.
    Made in California, and a bottle retails for $2.97 in St. Louis. The Merlot is quite drinkable, and a good value.
