A nations drink habits.

Thanks to Gavin Quinney of Chateau Bauduc for highlighting these figures. This is what we are drinking at home.



Looking at these figures there is obviously a difference between women and men. If there is no red wine, the blokes hit the beers whilst the ladies continue on the wine and champagne.

Regular readers will know I am a big fan of Provincial Rose. I am disappointed to see how poorly this faired. So come on gents, man up and drink some lovely rose.

We had our first summer rose this weekend. I chilled it in an ice bag, which looks great. Really convenient and effective on a hot day..

The makers name for the ice bag, I am sure you can guess and readily available from our favourite South American online retailer

We can now enjoy the World Cup without having to stress about England and  before Andy Murray puts us through the mill at Wimbledon. Don’t you just love the summer.

Ps The wine is our current favourite. Whispering Angel from FVD

PPS I think I have scored some declassified Lafite, but more next time…..


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.

    Surely recognize this difference in drinking behavior. As of now you can support the dutch team enjoying a glass of rose
