The rule "the more the better" working steadily for wines from South America, Australia and other non-European countries. This category consists of the sum of objective reasons, such as manufacturing, transportation, allowances, etc. Seller. In the case of European wines with "names" can work only for premium brand. Similarly, the variety of little-known distillery can cost very cheap.
Rule 2: Do not buy wine at a discount
Before selling a product that until the end of shelf life left little supermarkets will do everything to shove stale product. But we know that the wine is not spoiled. It follows from this that a discount may only be sold openly defective goods, there is little related to this wine.
Rule 3: Choose dry wines
"Semi-sweet" wine - a term that has circulated only in the territory of the former CIS. Nowhere in the world such wines do not drink. To produce such a low-quality wines using grapes, waste production, as well as adding to a considerable number of colors and sweeteners.
