    before making a half-hearted effort to make this a society, i thought i'd just see if anyone's vaguely into their wine, and if they are what their favourite(s) is..

    I really should get more into wine. I drink enough of the stuff (mainly white cheap soave from the college bar which is pretty rank). For the moment I prefer appreciating its effects more than the taste.

    It's quite hard to get hold of it outside Chateau Neuf du Pape as they don't make a lot of it, so hardly any makes it to the export market. My boyfs mum lives fairly close to there though - 'protecting' our supply!

    Fairtrade red wine from co-op is really nice, ethical and cheap!

    does it come from developing countries? i can maybe imagine some south african ones like chile, but i don't think the grape harvest of ethiopia is that impressive lol.

    It just means the growers in the country get a fair price instead of being exploited. I expected it to taste rank but its probably the nicest i've had recently, costs about £3. Fairtrade coffee is also nice! I swear im not a representative of the fairtrade organisation!

    doubt many here are "wine appreciators"...

    unless its a society for those who buy "wine" for 2.50 out of lidl on a friday night...

    if you get wine from lidl, it's not wine. it's a concoction crushed pomegranate with fungal additives and old spice which can no longer be sold.
