    Student doing a project on millenial drinking habits; any responses helpful! Thanks

    Do you pre-plan wine purchase or is it always convenience? Is price the only thing that guides you and, if so, do you choose 'on offer' or the brands that are always cheap? Or do you buy based on something else, such as packaging, adverts etc? What do you look for when you're buying a wine? How much do you spend on wine, and does that differ for different occasions?

    I don't. I bought some vines but they're more for the grapes.

    I see what's available at the time when I'm in the shop. I usually get wine from the supermarket, if something is being offered at a reduced price and I think it suits what I like I might buy it. Unless it's for a special occasion I'll spend up to a tenner on a bottle.

    I'd rather drink methylated spirits than some of the cheap branded wines out there.

    i personally treat myself to a good bottle of champagne when business is going well say VC or moet mainly but i'll buy krug and dom perignon as well

    I rarely buy wine that isn't horrendously overpriced and being purchased in a bar or restaurant. In general, I buy based on what I know I like or, depending on the company, recommendations.

    More of a whisk(e)y man.
