More than 350 chardonnays competed at the recent California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition.
The winnner? Trader Joe's "Two-Buck Chuck," which isn't under two bucks anymore, but is still pretty darned cheap. No wine over $50 medaled.
I'm sure there's some point out to be made here about the free market and the masses, but I'll let someone else make it. I just like seeing wine snobs bollixed.
