    I like to splurge ;) on a 1.5 litre jug of Carlo Rossi "Paisano" now and then. Decent blend for the money.

    I have been told not to buy "varietal" jug wines...blends only.

    As a kid (18) in the reserves waiting to go active duty, I worked in a Walgreen’s liquor store part time. I sold that stuff frequently.

    (I lied about my age to get the job. They never asked to see an ID and I never volunteered one)

    The big bottle was really cheap, smelled bad too. (I dropped one and it stank the whole store up!)

    Paisano, best buy for the money. I like expensive wine and I can taste the difference sometimes, but I like Paisano just as well. I also have a fondness for almost any type of Shiraz.

    I like jugs. Does that count?

    But seriously, for an everyday casual dinner/cooking wine, I like the Carlo Rossi Paisano. The chianti ain't bad either, but I'm no con-o-sewer.

    DAMMM RIGHT. I could have bought lots of reloading components with the wasted money spent on the varietal/vinegar of the month that was poured down the drain. With jug wine, you know what you are paying for. Most taste OK and are a good flavor enhancers in cooking.
