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.

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.

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.

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.
