How much do you pay for wine and where do you buy it?

    I've started reading the reviews on the WS website. They give a rough guide although are totally subjective of course.

    I encourage my husband to spend on his wine - he doesn't have any ' expensive ' hobbies. I think that we worked out we spent less in the wine club over the years than trawling round Tesco ? We only drink a bottle or two a week but I love to see the racks full and there are the additional ' freebies ' that come with the delivery. Each to his own of course I appreciate ...

    £10 minimum. Preferably reduced from £13 or so.

    Some great wines available at that price.

    Sometimes pick up cheaper stuff that I know is exceptional value. Sainsbury's Pic St Loup for example

    Waitrose, Majestic etc. Lidl sometimes have some proper bargains

    I don't drink too much these days but I do like the Cremant de Jura from Aldi at £7.99 a bottle. It's won a few prizes and is much more expensive elsewhere.

    You ought to be concerned about the quality of wine you will be able to afford in a couple of years time when it attracts import duty.

    If you are a Sainsbury customer with Nectar points you can currently convert £10 blocks of points into vouchers for £20. You have to say what section of goods it is for. So you can get £40 of Taste the Difference wines for £20.

    There is no import duty on wine from the EU or anywhere else. Just the same duty and VAT for all.

    Vouchers to buy what? Are they just for wine?

    Wine at a 'snip
    Here I am
    On the annoying pedestal
    Of those who actually
    Make their own wine
    And are known to the neighbours for it
    And when they visit
    And partake of it ad infinitum
    They also bring shop bought
    And we stockpile it
    And we enjoy it too
    So we pay virtually nowt for wine
    And never once
    Have we fessed up
    To our wine-bringing neighbours
    That we make our wine
    From parsnips
    At £1.75
    For 500 Forthergills seeds.
    Back of the net.

    The one I'm drinking at the moment cost £4.99, reduced from £7.99.
    It's going down quite nicely, thank you :)

    Used to drink the pink stuff, but went right off it; red wine gives me a headache, Chardonnay is awful, fell out with Pinot Grigio, so now it's Sauvignon blanc - preferably New Zealand. I always look for good stuff reduced to the £6/7 mark.
