As Ben Franklin said:<br>
In wine there is wisdom,<br>
in beer there is freedom,<br>
in water there is bacteria.<br><br>
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli)... bacteria found in feces.<br>
In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.<br><br>
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, Whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.<br><br>
Water = Poop...<br>
Wine = Health<br><br>
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid... than to drink water and be full of shit.<br><br>
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information...<br>
I'm doing it as a public service.

So what's the best under 10 bucks wine?
Not an expert in wines, but I usually avoid anything under $12...
Speaking of cheap wines, last year in Italy we were driving around Montepulciano, saw a very nice "Palazzo" (you know, old villa, cypress-tree lines driveway). We stopped there, the old guy got us drunk (wine tasting in Italy means finishing the bottle with the owners, so we drank 4 bottles between the 4 of us). But I didn't have much cash, he said he doesn't take credit cards, I told him I only had 30 euros, and he was very happy, he said with 25 he can give me one of each 4 wines he was making. DW insisted we give him 30, cause they were very nice people and the wine and ambiance was awesome. That comes to 7.5E, about $11/bottle.
