Found a bottle of RIPPLE , what is it? Pretty neat bottle. Says E&J GALLO WINERY. MODESTO, CALIF

HI Phyllis

Ripple is a product developed by the Gallo family in Modesto for those who want a sweet, fruity wine that is easy to drink.  It is best consumed when it is young, and quite chilled.  If your bottle has been around for a while, it may have lost a lot of its charm.

When released this was not an expensive wine, and it doesn't have any track record for appreciating in value as it ages.

Hope that helps!
