Always Elvis Wine

Always Elvis wine was released in 1979, two years after Elvis's death. The front label had a picture of Elvis, while the back label featured a poem by Col. Tom Parker.

Parker reportedly said that Always Elvis was the kind of wine Elvis "would have drunk if he'd liked the stuff."

At the time it sold for $4 a bottle. Now an unopened bottle of it will cost you upwards of $150.

However, there are other, newer Elvis Presley wines on the market, such as 'The King' wine, available at ElvisPresleyWines.com.

That Col. Parker quote sounds like something Yogi Berra would say.

I notice that California isn't mentioned as a distribution point for the "Blue Nun" type wine. It means that either California drinkers are discerning in their wines or that they are not Elvis fans. I'd like to think that they are both. Please forgive us for the "California Cooler", which was made from the cheapest white wines with a little bit of carbonated water.

Nowadays, "California Cooler" is named "Spritz" and a hundred different kinds of it are sold at every grocery store; carbonated cheap white wine, carbonated cheap red wine, carbonated cheap beer, carbonated cheap vodka, etc.

This is the wine that Elvis would have liked if Elvis had liked wine.
