Do you know how much tax you pay on a bottle of wine?
The average price of a bottle of wine in the UK is £5.03 – but you don’t get much wine for your fiver. The duty on a 75cl bottle is £2.00 then there is 20% VAT on everything, including duty.
By the time you also add the cost of the bottle and label, delivery and profit the value of the actual wine is tiny, as you will see in the infographic below, prepared by Charlie the Wine.
The moral of this story is you’ll get much better quality if you pay a little more for you wine. Drink less, but drink better.
