Thanks to the nice people at the Tesco Wine Community I have a case of wine to give away. It's their Spectacular Summer Entertaining case which is a fascinating mix of sparkling, red and white wines. All they have asked me to do is set up a competition and whoever wins they will send a case to the winner.
As I've been tasting a lot of inexpensive and not so inexpensive wine recently so the theme for the competition came quite easily. Simply put it's
"what the difference in cost between the wine in a bottle costing £5 and the wine in a bottle costing £10?"
Now before you hurriedly post an answer of £5 and then get disappointed when you don't win remember that there are costs to take into account on taxes, shipping and duty to name a few. It's the cost of the wine in the bottles I want and a little bit of research should yield a reasonably correct answer. As a caveat I have made some assumptions on the profit the retailer makes and packaging and distribution costs.
Why this subject? Because you really do get much more wine for your money the more you spend. I know that is no absolute guarantee you will like it the more you spend but it isn't it good to know you are really getting much more for your money for only a little bit more cash?
Just post your answer here before the closing date for the competition which is 10pm on Friday 6th July. I'll decide on the winner based on what I think the answer is to the nearest 10p. The winning entrant has to be happy to provide me with their contact details so I can pass them on to the Tesco Wine Community so they can arrange delivery.
