The worst wine I've ever had

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Pizza Vino, California, uh 2005 vintage even. My wife bought it on a lark because she liked what it said on the label.

But... too bad it's undrinkeable. Even at $4 a bottle. :D It's like sour gasoline.

I feel the same way about that "Red Truck" wine....

I said with a name that bad, the wine can't be much worse..

it is.

A friend told me I was a wine snob and that I had to do a blind tasting with him and some of our other friends. Each person brought 3 bottles, and I discovered that, no, I am not a wine snob, cheap bad wine tastes like cheap bad wine regardless of whether I can see the label or not. I later found out that he had made me drink some jug wine from Carlos Rossi. It was by far the worst wine I have ever had (well, 2nd worst: several month old Manischewitz from my grandmothers refrigerator was the worst). :(:(:(

Agreed firerose, 100%! I think for myself the worst I've ever had was this fisheye cabernet sauvignon, I think 2003, BUT I would preface by saying that other's that drank it with me actually found it to be good.

it just ges to support the old saying of "you get what you pay for". At for dollars a bottle what did yu expect? Fisheye is kind of hit and miss, I've had good and bad.

I hear ya, although to be fair there are decent wines under 10$.

I drink blackstone merlot weekly and its 9.99 a bottle....

bogle petite syrah used to be like 10.99 until it was featured in food&wine

here's a heads up for you wine drinkers too. There's a not very well known deerflied wine that is sold in small quantities. It's called Red Rex, a cabernet Blend, it sells for about $23 in New York. It's a superb wine, best bang for buck, not cheap but not expensive. If you're feeling curious I recomend picking one up.

Delicato White Zinfandel gets my vote. I don't know what vintage it was. It was really bad, but at least I only spent a few bucks on it. Tasted like vinegar.

IF you hated that, try a tabel chianti.....it's like grape paste

Vinegar Wine

I'm in no way a wine connoisseur, but the absolute worst wine I had was while I was in Madagascar. Apparently they make several varieties of wine there.

It's bad, really bad. You might as well just chug a bottle of vinegar.

vinegar: Horse's Creek, on sale at Walmart for $2.94 per 750 ml.

throw up in a bottle.

Out of curiosity, are any of you sure the wine itself wasn't bad?

Hmm... oh yeah the wine was bad all right! :D

Nope it wasn't corked if that's what you are asking.

And sorry for the late reply.

One of the worst I've had was some homemade stuff at one party. It tasted sort of like a cat peed in some Welch's grape juice. At our Beach Party back in February, though, I had some homemade wine one guest brought that was way better than expected. I was impressed.

Someday I may get around to tasting what could be the worst wine I've ever had. Back in 1979 when my first wife and I got married a friend gave us a bottle of homemade wine. It is still sitting on the shelf. Maybe in 2009, 30 years later, I'll pop the cork and see what we've got.
