Walmart’s Redneck Wine

Discount shopping to whine about

Soon Wal-Mart customers will be able to sample a new discount item: Wal-Mart’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 $1-4 range.

While wine experts may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a growing demand for cheap wine from Redneck conno-sewers, according to Bubba Borkoff, professor of marketing at Kentucky University. He said, “The right name is important.”
