Wine !!

Ok so having read all the previous threads and ascertaining that wine is probably the best idea - my question is - as I don't drink very much and very rarely buy wine - what is a 'nice' wine? And not one that costs too much bearing in mind I have several to buy! Please?

i'd go for one that's on offer reduced to what you want to spend, that way you get a 'good' wine for a lesser price - sorry not a connoisseur either. Anything fizzy of course is always a good bet if you don't know what colur they like.

  • oops omitted a few words there (they were in my head though so it should have been obvious!!) I do, of course, mean wine for teachers' presents.

how much you want to spend?
errazuriz is lovely (chilean)
35 degrees south (chilean)
mcguigans (australian)
hardys (australian)
all around £4.99 to £6.99

jacobs creek another reasonable one, think it's australian.

Cava is always nice - sparkling and generally £4 to £5 depending on where you get it. Sometimes supermarkets do it in boxes of 6 for a discount if you're getting a few - can always keep a couple for yourself.

Thank you - shall hotfoot around the wine aisles - looking as if I know what I'm talking about (for the first time)!
