    Wal-Mart announced that, on June 1, 2007, it began offering customers a new discount item - Wal-Mart's own brand of wine. The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with Ernest and Julio Gallo Winery of California to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $2-$5 range. Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-mart brand into their shopping carts, but 'there is a market for inexpensive wine,' said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at the University of Arkansas, Bentonville. She said: 'But 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).[​IMG]
