Sun Savers - Favourite Tipple
CLINKING about wine now ‘dry Jan’ is coming to an end?
A sip could soon set you back far more - according to recent reports.
UK booze suppliers have warned that wine prices could soar as soon as March, thanks to a shortage on bottles.
But, don’t panic, you can save cash with these corkers...
Box it: You may love the “pop” of a cork, but switching from bottle to box could save you dosh and
get your more bang for your buck. Fan of a medium dry white? Try switching from popular Oyster Bay
Sauvignon Blanc, £9 for 75cl at Sainsbury’s, for Tesco Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, £12.75 for 2.25Ltr - you get three times as much, for just £4.25 more.
SAVING: £14.25 on buying three 75cl bottles

Buy in bulk: Buying wine in cases will often give you the best value for your money. Look out for
deals in supermarkets SUCH AS which give you 25% off when buying 6 bottles.
SAVING: 25% on six bottles
Screw it: You may not fancy switching to cheaper, screw top wine, as it has a tendency to go dull and
flat, but there is a way to switch, save money and improve its taste if you give it a shake. You can also
try adding a few grains of salt to smooth out any uneven flavours in the wine. Enjoy and Italian red?
Try these tips on screw-topped Tesco Montepulciano D'abruzzo, £4.60, a far cheaper option than popular Orbitali Amarone Della Valpolicella, £16 at ASDA.
