A Nation Of Fine Winos

cliff.jpgI ALWAYS wondered what exactly ‘fine wine’ was. The same goes for ‘fine dining’. Where do you draw the line between ‘fine’ and ‘quite good’? And who draws it?

Anyway, it seems that we, the great British nation, are starting to get a little more sophisticated when it comes to wine. According to a spokesman for Majestic Wine shops, sales of wine costing £20 or more have jumped by a quarter in just the last year.

Although considering you can buy a decent bottle for a fiver, maybe ‘gullible’ is a more apt description than ‘sophisticated’.
