Our very dear friends just brought us a case of Two Buck Chuck (Charles Shaw Wine) from Williamsburg, VA. We had enjoyed this wine several year ago in Seattle and again in NYC.
Two Buck Chuck is sold exclusively at Trader Joe's but the closest Trader Joe's to us is 300 miles away.
We had previously beleived the owner of the winery was going through a messy divorce and came up with an idea on how to get back at his soon to be ex-wife. He would drop the price of the wine so low that she would get nearly nothing from the divorce.
Although this made for a good story, it is not true.
These inexpensive wines just began as the result of an oversupply of wine
