It feels like you're not getting it H.

 You're too distracted by the snobs vs the slobs.  ;)

 Let's use the wine enthusiast example. He understands and appreciates the differences between a bottle of Dom Perignon and Boones Farm Strawberry Hill because he's experienced both.

 The ignorant man sees both bottles of wine as being the same.

 ( Ignorant being defined simply as "not knowing" with no negative connotation intended whatsoever.)

 A perfect example of IGNORANCE on my part.

 Thank you for correcting me NyteShaed.

Not a matter of "not getting it", but rather of tackling one angle at a time so as to avoid confusion and needlessly rant-y posts.  Hell, look at how rant-y I get on one angle.  Really want to throw two or three more into the mix?

But, yes, you do bring up another angle to the discussion.

As well...the "SNOB, as opposed to "snob", knows the value of the differing vintages of DP.

Boone's Farm, back in the day, was wine.  Well, not really...it was flavored embalming fluid, but it was "wine" not "FMB".  IDK about now...haven't even dreamt of the desire to revisit that first sip WAYYYYY back when....

LOL, those aren't wines. They are the last inch or so from real wine barrels all poured into a new bucket then filtered to hell and back.
The dregs really. Naked Grape is another example of that.
I like to make my own. At least then I know what I've got.

I had serious issues with MD 20/20.  It's gone for good.

Ew, blarg.  Don't like those at all!  To be fair though, I make my own wine, and usually have the grapes shipped in from Napa if I'm not doing a local brew.  I generally don't like very many wines that aren't my own, so I seem to have taken the snobbery to another level. lol

I never used to like wine at all - couldn't even have a sip of it - but one day my father-in-law brought over a bottle of Wyndham Estates Cab Sauv (Austraila) and for some reason, it broke through my wine barrier.  After that, I LOVED red wine!  One of my favourite bottles is Penfolds Bin 2 (Austraila).  Actually I think I like all of the Penfolds reds that I've tried.  Koonunga Hill is another good one.

Still can't drink white, other than pinot grigio, but it's so sweet that I don't like to have it often.

 Brings back some fond memories of a bunch of us passing round the bottle and the bong on a beautiful summer evening back in 76.  :)

I used to sell wine for a living.

You might want to check out Pinot Gris.  It's the same rape as Pinot Grigio, but done in a dryer style.

So many responses... none appropriate since this is supposed to be a PG13 board. LOL  ;)  That does sound quite painful though. heh
