    Some excellent drinkable wines at around a fiver.  Aldi do BIG bottles of Prosecco for £12 ...£6 a litre and it is brilliant specially with a small shot of plum vodka in the glass first.  Most of these wine writers are on a deal anyway.

    Good find.

    To be honest I always cook with a wine I would want to drink, if it’s not good enough to drink why cook with it?

    Indeed, makes cooking more pleasant too, if you can have a good drop whilst doing it.:good:

    I always follow WC Field's maxim

    "I cook with wine, sometimes I'm even known to add it to the food"

    I find that Lidl and Aldi do some very drinkable red wines at very reasonable prices

    Gone are the days of Blue Nun and the like,  there are some very nice wines out there now that dont break the bank. I am an avid fan of Rioja.
