You get what you pay for.
What do people mean when they ask for a “value wine”? Can a $40 wine be called good value? In these times of financial awareness, value is not necessarily a simple, inexpensive wine. There are some great wines out there that are underpriced for the quality of the wine. These don’t stand out as much as wines that are over-priced for their level of quality. Does knowing the price affect how we taste a wine? Are we pre-judging it based on the sticker price?
And then there is the small matter of taste which is different for everybody. Financial ability is another factor that influences our perception of what constitutes value in a bottle of wine. In this week’s podcast, we’ll look at what it is that makes a wine a good or bad value. And we’ll taste a wine that is priced in the inexpensive “value” category and see if it can deliver.
