Restau­rant plonk

Costa Almería News - - Loose Woman -

When go­ing out for a meal and faced with the wine menu, many are too em­bar­rassed to ask for the cheap­est wine and so of­ten opt for the se­cond cheap­est on the list.

But a study by the con­sumer group Which? has un­veiled that nei­ther are good value as both have eye wa­ter­ing mark ups.

One restau­rant had a 367 per cent mark up, charg­ing cus­tomers £33 for a £7 one – but the av­er­age was a ‘more rea­son­able’ 167 per cent!

The best value are the most ex­pen­sive bot­tles of wine, with some only adding on an ex­tra 25 per cent to their whole­sale prices. On av­er­age, the small­est mark up was on cham­pagne and the largest on red wine.
