How much should I spend on wine? Are more expensive always wines better? Can you really taste the difference between a cheaper and more expensive bottle? These are questions we are asked a lot so we decided it's time to find out!
Join us as we show you how to judge the quality of a wine and work out whether you really do get what you pay for when you buy a wine. We'll explain why you should expect a better quality wine as you spend more.
First we'll taste a wine with you blind and show you how to judge the quality of a wine.
Then we'll taste ten different wines with you 'blind'. We will taste them in pairs - they will both be a similar style or grape variety but one will cost less than a tenner and the other between £10 & £20 a bottle. The 'plonk' we've selected will still be good wine, as we believe you shouldn't have to pay a fortune for good wine, but will you be able to tell the difference between it and the more expensive wine? Most importantly which will you prefer - the 'posh' or the 'plonk'?
All good wine deserves good nibbles so some premium nibbles will be served alongside one of the wines.
