Default Cheap and cheaper

About a month ago, I went in an Aldi grocery store to look around.
I found a bottle of Cabernet for $2.07. I thought about the cost
of putting that bottle on the shelf: bottle $.47, label,cap and
cork bring it up to about $.63. Shipping must be $.30. Anyway, it
looked to me like about $1.o7 for the Cabernet. I didn't think any
one could do that so I bought a bottle to see what was in it.
I was every bit as good as any $25 bottle of California Cab that
I have drunk.

Two weeks later the price had skyrocketed to $2.78. Still a good
buy.
I tried the Winking Owl Chardonay for $2.78. I don't believe this
bottle was filled with wine. Yuck
If you go in Aldi, make sure your smart phone has a scanner so you
can find the price of items. I think about 50% are unmarked.

I bought an electronic fever thermometer that measures from forehead
and ear for $8.

Hey, Bill! Long time, and all that. What you got is Aldi's answer to
"Two Buck Chuck." It's made by Gallo for Aldi and sold under the
Winking Owl label. Unlike 2BC, it stands a reasonable chance of being a
consistent product since Gallo owns a lot of vineyards themselves,
unlike Bronco (the maker of 2BC for TJs) Given the volume of the sales,
I'd suggest stocking up because they probably will issue it in several
lots throughout the year. Maybe not, though (it is Gallo, after all,
the master of bulk sales).

Hope all is well with you,
Mark Lipton
