Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 11th August 2019 - August 17, 2019

 w/c 11th August 2019 A busy few days has seen the Tasting Panel review 70 wines and, happily, there are some serious bargains to be had across the price range. Disappointingly, we found only around half of them to be Good Value or Fair Value so there is still some work...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 5th August 2019 - August 4, 2019

 w/c 5th August 2019 With the Tasting Panel away for a well-deserved break, we have taken a look back over the last few weeks at those wines which didn’t quite make it into the “Wines of the Week” but still caught our attention as offering decent quality at Good or Fair...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 29th July 2019 - August 3, 2019

 w/c 29th July 2019 It is purely coincidental that this is being written from the rolling wooded hills north of Siena but this week we have a distinctly Tuscan feel to the recommendations. Properly made, Sangiovese has the capacity to produce outstanding, fragrant wines, with distinct yet elegant structure that pairs...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 15th July 2019 - July 17, 2019

 w/c 15th July 2019 With summer returning this week, our Tasting Panel have taken a look at some sparkling wines and unearthed a few delicious and tastily-priced bargains. To start, though, we’ve picked a couple of still wines from Aldi in the £5 and under category that really stand out.   The Wotwine...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 8th July 2019 - July 12, 2019

 w/c 8th July 2019 A heavy tasting schedule this week has revealed some well-made and – our raison d’être – good value wines across the price range. We keep saying this but there are still too many (over 50% this week) which simply do not deliver on a price tag of...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 1st July 2019 - July 7, 2019

 w/c 1st July 2019 The Wotwine panel of independent experts tastes 40 – 60 supermarket wines a week to pick out the top buys for you. After a good run, it was a disappointing week for our Tasting Panel, with only four wines rated Good or even Fair Value. The only consolation...

 w/c 24th June 2019 The Wotwine panel of independent experts tastes 40 – 60 supermarket wines a week to pick out the top buys for you.  It’s been a busy and productive week of tasting for our Panel and we’re excited to bring you four great recommendations across the entire range of...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – w/c 17th June 2019 - June 24, 2019

 w/c 17th June 2019 The Wotwine panel of independent experts tastes 40 – 60 supermarket wines a week to pick out the top buys for you. Last week we focused on red wines at Waitrose that were on special offer but, by the time our email was sent out, the offers were...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – Waitrose & Partners Special - June 14, 2019

Waitrose & Partners Special Our team have been travelling this week so we have again decided to do something a little different. It has long been a complaint of ours that too many of the wines that on “special offer” at supermarkets are merely being marked down to the price they...

Wotwine best value wines of the week – Our Most Scanned Wines - June 6, 2019

 w/c 3rd June 2019 Half-term holidays mean that there were no tasting panels last week so we’ve taken a look at something different: which of the wines you have scanned most often offer the best value?  As you’d expect, some of the better-known brands are near the top of the “most...
