How to get the most bang for your buck

Finding the sweet spot is all about getting the best bang for your buck at a price point you are comfortable with.

It’s true. Spending a few more pounds can (almost always) dramatically improve the quality of wine in the bottle.

How come?

At lower price points a larger percentage of the cost goes on duty, the glass bottle and the closure – not the wine. But at higher price points, spending a few pounds more actually goes into the liquid in the bottle – exponentially increasing the quality of the wine you’re buying.

But be wary as this is only true to a point. For wines that are hundreds or even thousands of pounds, alot of your money is going into paying for a particular brand or label rather than into the wine itself.

Hence the sweet spot…don’t spend too little, don’t spend to much. Sticking to this rule simple rule is a good place to start when buying wine.

Where your money goes on a bottle of wine:

When you buy a £9.99 75cl bottle of wine, compared to a bottle priced at £4.99, the wine is worth over SIX times more!

  1. Thank you for this – unfortunately these are directed specifically to markets other than Scotland. Is it not possible to indicate the pricing that applies in Scotland?

    1. I’ll try to be polite here. That’s about the 4th most stupid thing I’ve read on the whole interweb today. Why can’t we vote to kick out the Scots? they’re trying for a second time soon; let’s just sack them and stop paying so much per person to keep them. Maybe Trump can help us build a wall if Hadrian isn’t available.

      1. Yes, it was an odd post. But your reply certainly rivals it in terms of stupidity, not to mention small-minded bigotry. Interesting article though. In Shanghai, where I live, a bottle that would cost £5 in the UK sells for around £15 or more so count yourselves lucky.
