This is the cheapest type of wine, and also the type of wine which is made in the most abundance - most wine made in the United States is jug wine. (terms are different in other areas - in Europe the cheapest type of wine is called 'table wine'.) This stuff is dirt cheap and thus is popular with college students and 'rednecks'. Unlike most wine, this stuff is consumed only to get drunk, as it tastes like rancid, sweet grape juice, not wine. It comes in big gallon jugs, and also in boxes. Out in Bishop we'd put the stuff in Nalgene bottles and drink it while floating down the Owens River. its got a high alcohol concentration and is good for getting fucked up, but not much else.
