It's been almost 3 years since you posted this question. Well I came across it today and thought I would respond. You've heard of a day late and a dollar short, anyway, here's my two cents worth.From my experience, most folks who aren't familiar with the name, never pronounce it right. Sometimes it can become quite comical.I may not have heard them all, but I've heard a bunch.I am from Athens, Georgia and I know Alewines from Clarke, Madison, Hart, Franklin, and Stephens Counties in NE Ga.With very few exceptions, this branch pronounces it A-La-Wine.(Three syllabels, long A) Anyway you want to pronounce it, I know I'm proud to be one!
