It's not Dunnes...

Despite this morning's rant, don't think I have anything against Dunnes because I don't. I actually think they have some interesting wines at reasonable prices. It's just these stupid "sales" that seem to happen now in all the major multiples, Tesco and Superquinn if anything are worse.

Just sorry to see Dunnes are following the same route of duping their customers...

How come the wine journos don't pick up on these things? Surely they should be championing the consumer rather than writing massively inappropriate articles about Georgian wine the same week the country is getting pounded by Putin & Co.? Yes, that is you, Tomas Clancy, stop talking down the back!

Ok, I'm calming down now. Focus on the Roederer dinner I am going to tonight, nothing like a glass of Cristal to calm the nerves so long as someone else is paying. Mind you, I have a bone to pick with Searson's as well, but it will wait. Till tomorrow.

Hi Gabriel,

if the journos were to write an exposé on the dubious tactics of the ubermarkets, they'd be biting off the hand that feeds them.

As most people buy their wine in supermarkets, perhaps their duty is to highlight the best of a bad lot.

I'd prefer to see them champion the specialised wine shop, though.
