Do any wine drinkers on the forum

Answered more than a tenner for a bottle of wine?

I would most likely have ordered a bottle of Becks!

Paid £3.50 on offer in Morrisons

Often pay much more than £10 although often less for a day to day drinking wine. Often cheaper by the case 2001 Le Pin

At home we usually pay less than a fiver per bottle although invariably purchased at the supermarket in quantity when there is 25% off 6 or more.

At a pub restaurant we'll pay £20 or so for the second cheapest on the wine list. Not convinced I would appreciate the difference with anything much dearer and only ever drink wine with food rather than simply for it's own enjoyment.

We do hold a large stock of wine and there can be quite a noticeable difference in taste between bottles of the same brand / variety purchased at different times but unless you were tasting and spitting out, you quickly become accustomed to the taste of the new bottle and I wouldn't like to say which was the better (and you get past caring after two glasses anyway!).

We usually aim for between £7 - £8. At the present we rather like either Yellow Tail or Wolfbass Merlot

I wonder what the mark up was on that bottle?

It always amuses that, when tasting wine, "connoisseurs" will say it tastes of almost anything, except fermented grape juice...

25% off 6 or more at Tesco, including Yellow Tail this morning.

What has Becks to do with wine?

We buy 3 Mills U.K. red at ASDA at £3.25 - a good red for the price. I will look at the Yellow Tail mentioned as my wife likes Merlot

I prefer a longer more refreshing drink, that's all.

I'm a wine Philistine, the bottle in question wouldn't have been noticed as much different to any supermarket bottle with me....
