I like the name Fruf. "Blue Nun". Lot's of possibilities with that title. Incidentally, I just remembered that when I was drinking all those great wines, my wife (40 years a few months back)and I named our first cat "Mateus". I think that the next one I'll get I will do it again. Nice name and maybe I'll try another bottle if it still exist.

In college sometimes we drank Annie Greensprings plum wine (1973-1977). I decided around then I preferred beer. I've since had a few much better wines, but they all sort of taste like cough syrup to me. So, I figure wine is kind of wasted on me.

Personally I don't mind the taste of white wine not chilled or not quite chilled enough. To my mind champagne is overated not exactly puke but not all that it is cracked up to be, it was a bit of a disappointment when I tried it. I am just as happy with sparkling wines for special occasions.

Well Ladies and gentlemen here is a list of the "Puke Wines" that you have mentioned. The only two that I don't think should be on the list is Blue Nun and Black Tower. Not that I have tasted all of the lovely names you have mentioned, but these two I have and even though I don't like sweet wines I would not consider them "Puke".
Wouldn't it be great to have a bottle of each of these mentioned in the list below on our shelves to admire. Not opened of course.

Lord, you have all mentioned some real swill! INterestingly enough, though you can find some reasonably priced (cheap) wines that will be better than the expensive counterparts. I am a chardonney drinker and pretty much prefer Rombuer and Sonoma Cutrer, (both in the $30 per bottle range,) but I found a bottle of something called Bay Bridge at Kroger. It is not as good, but it is also $4 a bottle and absolutely drinkeable! THink I will have a glass RIGHT NOW!

A wine was good when it had only hints of turpentine, raw sewage, and battery acid. If it more than hinted at something like chloroform or rotten fish it was considered "great". If you could tell the time of day it was made and it wasn't more than a week old you were a wine connasewer.

Concorde sparkling wine it was very cheap very sweet and nasty at the time just over £1 a bottle when it was first introduced, that was in Tesco in the 70's. I didn't know very much about wines at all back then it reminded me of drinking vinegar it puzzled me how wine experts could possibly detect hints of blackberry etc. to me it was like something to strip varnish with, so something as cheap as Concorde seemed like a good idea at the time. Blue Nun, Black Tower or Liebfraumilch were the next safe bet especially when trying to impress other 18 year olds. Now I prefer beer and fruit ciders.

Years ago I bought a bottle of red in Tesco's called "Odessa Steps" as it was about £2 cheaper than anything else on the shelf.
It came from somewhere in the old Soviet Union so far north that they couldn't possibly grow grapes properly and the taste reflected that. Even adding lots of sugar couldn't make it drinkable and it went down the sink.
The buyer should have been sent to the Gulag.

In my childhood, Manischewitz was drinkable. In my old age, by divine intervention, it becomes drinkable again at Passover -- and hard-boiled eggs become edible.

The rest of the year, my standard wine is Sutter Home -- only $6 a bottle, and they put a tab on the foil seal, so you don't need a tool to remove it. Respect for the customer!

I remember drinking pretty much everything that's been mentioned so far, plus:

Bali Hai - Sorta like Hawaiian Punch mixed with grain alcohol and vomit.

Zapple - A Boone's Farm apple clone. It's the one I heard was purported to contain formaldehyde, not Boone's Farm.

Annie Green Springs - Another Boone's Farm apple clone. Or maybe it's the one that was supposed to contain formaldehyde.

Andre' Cold Duck - Like Ripple, but in a real wine bottle.

Nowadays I prefer the better German whites. While Silas is quite right about the Trockenbeerenauslese, you do not need to go to that expense. Any "Auslese" from the Mosel region will be great.

Oh - should mention the great late harvest whites now coming from the Finger Lakes region of New York State, and the great Eisweins coming from Ontario from the winerys along the QEW between Buffalo and Toronto.

Always liked Canadian beer, but the wines are now getting great as well.   Merci Canada!

Chateau Pis-de-Chat and Vin Tres Ordinaire! I used to love very sweet white wines, but as I aged I preferred robust red ones, (eg Roussillon region).

There was an Italian wine, called something like "Rialto" (at least I seem to remember it began with a "R"). It kinda lost favor with people when it was discovered that the company was adding antifreeze -- ethylene glycol -- as a sweetener or something.

Riunite! It was Riunite!

Adrien,
There is nothing wrong with those brands that you first mention! However atmosphere is important, and they are best consumed behind a dancehall with the brown paper bag still covering the bottle. These days wine consumers want it in a glass and some even want to sniff the cork (totally decadent)!
And Kendall, Wild Irish Rose was also the title of my favourite George Jones song. He lies there holding his "Chateau Margaux 1995" just does not cut it!
That being said I'm a rum and beer man.

Back in the 60's-70's there were house parties everywhere. You brought your own booze and guitars if you played and drank till the wee hours. I recall how we loved to get about three couples for an evening supper. My buddy and i would fill the punch bowl with Loganberry Wine and set it at the middle of the table. We probably would fill it twice then get into the beer. Mornings came way to early especelly if you had to work.
