I will do, but later. I'll give you my two penneth first. I have it down to a fine art to scan the wine section 0of a supermarket looking for the cheapest one. I start at one end and work my way to the other, saying, often out loud, a commentry like "3.99, we have 3.99, can anyone beat 3.99... yes, 3.79....(points with excitement) 2.99, cool, ok, can anyone beat 2.99?" and then i proceed to buy the cheapest skankiest wine, and mix it with coke or a fanta+sugar combo to make a cheap and easy way of getting pissed in the form of either kalimotxo or sangria respectively!

If it's for a meal, then i tend to go for Bordeaux or Rioja though. And you can never go wrong with a bottle of BeaujolE.

Man i sound like my dad!

  I've never been part of that 'cheapest wine you can get brigade', really. I've always worked on the basis that 5 minimum is low enough, really. Oh, and if its white, I tend to leave it alone. I'm not a white wine man at all

  But you are a white man. Fact. I used to do the white wine thing until i drank 2 bottles of it along with beer and a fair amount of Cointreau in the space of about 1.5hrs. I turned to red wine then. For the record, i no longer drink Cointreau either. Beer is still a prominent part of my life though.

  You know, I'd never have guessed that beer was a prominent part of your life....
