#1514 Grapes of Ridicule

What are you looking for when you buy a bottle of wine? If you’re alone do you reach for the cleanskin? If you’re sharing it with friends maybe you want something a bit more fancy, a wine to show off, mark you as someone who knows their shit.

If you’re taking it to your parents house or giving it as a gift perhaps you’ll look closer to the top of the shelf, or judge the wine by it’s cover. Maybe you’ll look for the award stamps that mean other people have swirled and spit out your cabernet and judged it to be worth your time.

This week on All the Best, producer Yasmin Parry delves into the world of wine, and the stories that come with each bottle.
