Thunderbird Wine

Ladies and gentlemen...what's the word? Thunderbird!

In my opinion, I rank the Night Train Express and Thunderbird as #1 and #1A in the bum wine world. Both were made by Gallo wines, even though they never want to admit it. These guys are sitting on a goldmine and just don't realize how to promote these fine wines to the masses. I'm telling you that with the proper promotion, I believe we could get these wines back into the mainstream!

Out of the top 5 bum wines, Thunderbird was the final piece of the puzzle for me and was very difficult to get my hands on. It wasn't until one faithful day that I received a text message with a picture of a bottle of Thunderbird that I knew my life would change forever. 

Thunderbird is indeed "The American Classic" and every Real American should enjoy a taste of Thunderbird at least once in their life. 

While Thunderbird is great to drink on its own, you always need to have an alternative for the people that just can't seem to handle the dirty bird on its own. That's where Thunder Dew comes in handy. Grab yourself a cheap bottle of Thunderbird and a bottle of Mountain Dew, mix them together, and boom! You got yourself some Thunder Dew that is guaranteed to get the party started! 

Do yourself a favor this weekend and pick yourself up a bottle of Thunderbird. You can thank me later. 

The American Classic!

The dirty bird!
