Enjoy a 200 Dollar Bottle of Ripple

I know Ripple best as a song by the Grateful Dead, but apparently there is nostalgia for the wine as well. The fortified and fizzy sweet wine concoction was produced by E & J. Gallo between 1960 and 1984. And, according to The Drinks Report, "Surviving bottles are extremely rare with unopened bottles, originally sold for $1, valued at between $150 and $200."

If you do decide to spend two hundred dollars on a bottle of Ripple versus, say, Bordeaux or Burgundy, unfortunately I doubt that it will be as long-lived as storied and costly French vintage wines from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Speaking of vintage, check out this commercial for Ripple, appealing to "lively people" looking for "ring-a-ding flavor" in a wine that "winks back at you". I never thought of the bubbles in sparkling wine as winking back at me but now I can't get that image out of my head and I'm sort of freaked out.
