When I first got into wine, there were television commercials like these creating awareness and demand:[youtube]ITDcf06OUYo[/youtube]
Today, I can’t imagine an actor like Anthony Hopkins plugging Mondavi or Gallo wines on TV. How far we have come in the marketing of wine…
Looking at these spots takes me back to my wine roots, drinking a bit of Paul Masson Burgundy and Emerald Dry. Most days, however, I drank Gallo Hearty Burgundy or Chablis Blanc from huge 3 liter jugs. Haven’t had those wines in years; I wonder if they are still as tasty as I remember them? Perhaps a trip down the jug aisle is in order.
What were your “roots wines”?
