BUYING WINE – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Is buying wine a chore? Do you agonise over which wine to buy for a particular occasion? Adopt these easy to follow rules and you can’t go wrong:-

  • BBQ Pringles: red wine
  • Sour Cream and Onion Pringles: white wine
  • Avoid anything that claims it will protect your engine at temperatures down to minus 40 degrees Celsius

Simples.

If still in doubt, try Aldi’s £3.49 Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon. Go on, try it. This inoffensive little number hails from Spain and it’s really not bad. And it’s cheaper than Comma Xstream G40 (available from Halfords and other motoring stores). It may seem unlikely that such a cheap wine could be any good but it’s surprisingly mellow and eminently quaffable. It goes very well with old friends and candlelight – because a) you can afford enough to make your friends’ tired old stories still seem funny and b) purple teeth are less visible in low light conditions.
