this reflects my experiences in America I think...

Some great stuff for $20 but what did you drink for $5, the equivalent of what would cost us 7 with our incredible tax rates. Some stuff, but not a lot. Skewed by mostly being Californian wine in California, but still.

And before Oerdin chimes in, yes, the 2 buck chuck was drinkable.

I drink "everyday" wine from Aldi... $4-$5 a bottle. Is good, not incredible...except for the price/quality :)

"Europeans seem perfectly comfortable cracking open a 1-euro tetra-pak of wine for guests."

Definitely not. Okay, maybe the germans... or for the germans.

And I would never serve cheap wine to my guests.
I would serve a nice glass of warm piss.

Probably should be "hostiphallity" though.

I don't really buy expensive wine, but I have found that sometimes the really cheap stuff gives mea headache while more expensive stuff does not.

Some people say the headache from cheap wine might be from the amount of sulphites and other additives, which is probably true.

But I've noticed that the higher quality the wine is the slower you drink it. Which also might be related.
