    Font - I have actually heard of something similar to this. There is a wine company that sells their wine at Trader Joe's called Two Buck Chuck. I'm no wino but it is supposedly very good wine and you can get a bottle for about two dollars. It used to be more expensive before the owner lost a large chunk of all future revenue in his divorce settlement, so he lowered the price to cut his ex out of as much money as he could. 10 ...
