Rule #1

If it has a yellow label with a picture of a plantation house on it, it's probably crap.

Do NOT pour that piss in my glass!
I mean it.  I'll drink just about anything, but if my husband brings home some pinot grigio, and the label features a mansion,* I go all Dame Maggie Smith on his ass.  When it comes to indignation over which cheap wine I'll drink, the Dowager Countess has nothing on me.

*I would make an exception if the label featured a picture of Downton Abbey, or Highclere Castle, as it is known in real life.  Has anybody thought of this?  Is there Downton wine?  There should be.

If, on the other hand, the label sports a half-assed sketch of a barnyard animal, I'm in.
