If you’re a person of a certain age, an early 90’s hip hop fan, or like me, both, you’ve enjoyed your share of forties. Okay,¬†enjoyed¬†might not be quite the right word to describe the feeling of drinking 40 ounces of cheap malt liquor, but what can I say, I have fond memories of those times despite the fact that you couldn’t pay me any amount of money to sip Old English ever again.

Forty Ounce Wines¬†has improved on our nostalgia and made 40-something-year-old life better by filling 4o ounce bottles with rose and muscadet wines¬†produced in the Loire Valley by French winemaker Julien Braud, a hip, young winemaker who’s building a reputation for his organically grown grapes.

And the best part? These forty ounce bottles of wine are actually practical, especially for spring and summer gatherings. Each bottle is around $16 a pop and contains almost double the amount in a standard-sized bottle of wine. A deal you don’t have to conceal in a brown paper bag.

Another thing this old lady¬†can’t resist!
