They've had good wines. They like bad ones. 

Just wanted to point out that even many wine connoisseurs agree that inexpensive wine does not equal "bad" wine. :)

I'm aware! But their favorite wine tastes like Shasta or Nehi or some other fruit-flavored soda.  I'm not being condescending here.  Some people like, say, a nice peppery shiraz.  Other people like grape-flavored red wine with a slight, inexplicable fizz.  Buying them, even, my favorite ten buck bottle would, my SO says, inevitably be greeted with "but it's so sour" or whatever.  I'm not trying to be a wine snob.  But I am trying to get them something they'll actually enjoy.
