Can you Taste the Difference ?

I began writing this blog to try to document my move away from supermarket wines to those from independant retailers, however, in recent weeks my head has been turned somewhat by Sainsburys and their Taste The Difference range. 


It seems a long time ago that supermarkets were trying to tempt us to spend more by offering premium ranges of food and wine. Of course it’s quite the opposite now with even Waitrose offering an essentials range but these wines seems to fit between the two. It’s great quality and great value. The whites seem to be more successful than the reds though

Here are my favourites in no particular order

Gruner Veltliner       £7.99

You would normally have to pay over £10 for this sort of quality

Bourgogne Aligote       £6.99

You will remember from a previous post that I love Goisot Aligote but I can’t find that for less than £13.00

Petit Chablis       £6.99

Bargain !

Cote du Rhone Village      £6.79

Pretty potent at 14.5% but can cope with that level of alcohol.

Can you taste the difference ?



About Man et Vin

I am a 47 year old living in Nottingham. Maybe, like me, you have become disillusioned by the quality and variety of most wine that is sold in the UK. I am not anti supermarket or wine store but there must be more out there. Please join me on my journey to find decent good value wine. At the same time I want to find out more about storage, availablity and discover some of the lesser known wine growing areas. I have nothing to do with the wine industry, as it happens I am a middle manager in a financial services company.
