How often do you stand in front of the wine section at the supermarket and think, “It’s a special occasion, shall I spend a bit more on a bottle of wine - or shall I play it safe and stick to my tried and trusted Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc?
Is there any point spending a bit more when I probably won't notice the difference? What’s the difference between premium and regular wines anyway?”
How much should you spend on a bottle of very good wine? Is the £16 you spend on a bottle of Chateauneuf-du-Pape money well spent or is it better to spend it on a bottle of Cote du Rhone? Just what is it that determines the quality and the price? Is £5 enough to spend on a bottle of wine that you like but others don’t? Who’s right? You never have doubts about which steak to buy, so why should buying wine be so mind-boggling?
Confused? You won’t be if you come to A TOUCH OF QUALITY: PREMIUM vs REGULAR WINES, a talk and tasting at the Pushkin House Wine Club, on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20th, 7pm-9pm.
