If you google Richard's Wild Irish Rose, you get a lot of hits for gag wine sites. Richard's is now a brand of Constellation Brands and their Centerra Wine subsiduary, formerly Canandaigua Wine Company:
http://www.cwinesus.com/centerrawine.html

But the Centerra site claims to be under construction with no details about their "fortified" wines. For details on Richard's, you need to go to the "bum wine" sites indexed by google.

      OMG, being a new grad (RN, Lenox Hill Hospital, NYC) in, hmmmmm, almost '70's,.....

      I remember, (kinda)

      Lambrusco. (Hope this hasn't been mentioned already)?!

      And, fast forward, I am now living in CA, with all the great wine growing counties surrounding me!

      Thanks for the memories......

        Ahh, Boone's Farm. Brings back a memory of my hitchhiking days....I was stuck in Leggett, CA up in the redwoods. I had about $7.00 on me and was hungry as hell. Stopped in a little country store and bought a bottle of Strawberry Hill, a can of Campbell's beans, and a loaf of day old Wonder Bread. Made my way across the street and threw my sleeping bag down under one of those mighty trees and had one of the most memorable meals of my life. Slept like the dead, and headed for Astoria, OR the next morning.....

          Well, if real wine prices keep going through the roof, I may revert to my college days.

          Let us never forget TJ Swan (EASY DAYS, MELLOW NIGHTS, STEPPING OUT,and MAGIC MOMENTS.)

          Or Tyrolia. Used to use it for bong water.

          I swore off Thunderbird after hallucinating on I-5 one night.

          Didn't Todd (Bill Murray) try to ply Lisa (Gilda Radner) with Mateus?

          One of the funniest SNL skits is Will Ferrell as Shaun Mondavi, the bastard son of Robert Mondavi, trying to market his own "wine", which was tequila, Five Alive, and cocoa marshmallows. It has been removed from You Tube, unfortunately.

            Does anyone remember Aldo Cella. We talked the clerk in a liquor store in Jersey to give us a life size cut out Aldo and brought it to the Shore. Wildwood was never the same.


            Yes,remember the ad..."Chill a Cella!!!

            [url='http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=133404']Here's[/url] the commercial. Hey, Aldo! pb

              At least it wasn't Annie Green Springs!

              I recall that Boone's Farm was best when kept in a glass 'decanter' that was warmed by drawing smoke through the wine. THe smoke was consumed, the wine wasn't.

                Annie Green Springs! It was a very good month. What it is! For a hazy, odiferous blast from the past, check out www.ghettowine.com

                    Nah ... fresh water in the bong; drink the wine.
                    I was never that hip ;-)
                    "Cool Leaf" (menthol) papers were as progressive as I got.
