    How much was it? that is the only way to tell if it is 'real' as you put it

    You know sparkling wine is actually quite nice now... could just be my alcoholic taste buds getting to use to champagne

    Oh and happy... no bold :pierre:

    I think it was £120 per bottle from M&S.

    It is nice to be honest. We did have Cava Champagne there as well which was quite nice.

    Good stop doing the stupid pierre face too

    Anyone who spends that much on one bottle of anything, has more money than sense.

    EDIT - Happy Birthday, btw.

    A bottle full of 24 carat gold ingots? £120 would be a bargain for that!

    Fair do's. It was just my initial shock at seeing the words "I think it was £120 per bottle from M&S."

    Having a wine cellar is pretty damned posh regardless of what's in there! Or is that just me?

    No, it's not just you. The closest you'll find to a wine cellar in my house, is the cupboard in the kitchen where we keep the Asti before Christmas.

    I guess. To be honest, though, I've tended to associate those who store up wine as being posher than normal. But my family doesn't really drink and certainly not vino. It's that inverse snob in me again!

    I'd guess collecting wine is a sign of relative poshness (As long as it's proper wine, and not someone hoarding cartons of Tesco Value Rosé [which is actually quite nice, I should add!]), but merely having a wine cellar shouldn't be an indication of poshness. Some houses just have them, and not necessarily expensive, fancy ones.

    Many terraced houses in Ashington or Moss Side have a wine cellar? What I kind of meant by "doesn't matter what's in it" wasn't not having bottles of wine in it, but rather the relative value of the collection. I mean, if people have £5 - £10 bottles in there, it's still kind of a posh thing to do. It's hardly boxes of carling or stella for a friday night's pre-booze. :p:

    It isn't posh, there must be others that also collect wines and are not well off... even if it is cheap stuff?

    Do I look like I would ever visit Moss Side?! :zomg:

    In all seriousness, I fail to see how having £5-10 bottles in there is posh. My parents, while lacking a wine cellar, have a "collection" of cheap wine, albeit it not in the cellar, rather their raffle winnings/gifts. And they cannot be considered posh, at all. Even Somali pirates would look at them and say "My, what uncivilised vagrants these people are!"

    You even included the accented [acute] e...

    How pompous :cool:

    Although in saying that, anyone who doesn't use it should be punished severely. Perhaps 10 hours of Friday Friday will suffice.
