Spend ten­ner, whine ex­perts

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BOOZE-LOV­ING Brits should be spend­ing at least a TEN­NER on a bot­tle of wine, ac­cord­ing to snobby ex­perts.

While su­per­mar­kets are crammed with cut-price wines, ex­perts say your av­er­age £5 tip­ple is ‘in­cred­i­bly dull, bland, and blended for the mass mar­ket’.

And if you re­ally want some­thing to tickle the taste­buds you have to shell out £10.

Gra­ham Mitchell, owner of London’s pres­ti­gious El Vino wine bar and cre­ator of web­site Thewi­ne­ex­plorer.co.uk, claims: “These £5 con­coc­tions all taste the same.

“A con­sid­er­able amount of wine im­ported into the UK is in­cred­i­bly dull.

“Although a more ex­pen­sive wine is only three times the price it is eight times the qual­ity.”
