Here in the UK we have a certain culture that’s known throughout the world; the culture of drinking. Whether we’re celebrating or commiserating, we like to have a drink. And going on holiday isn’t any different. We relish the thought of relaxing with a cocktail next to the pool or on a beach in exotic climates.
Years ago partying in Ibiza with cheap cocktails may have seemed like the best way to enjoy alcohol abroad. But what about the different types of alcohol from around the world; in particular, the different types of wine? The truth is, some of the best wines come from around the world and with cheap flights to Australia, the USA, South Africa and the majority of Europe, you could be sampling the wines of the world before you know it.
Over the years wine has got rather expensive, with wine snobs looking down on those who pick up a cheap bottle for under a fiver. But with some of the most expensive wines in the world hailing from France and retailing at a staggering $16,193, or £10,352, you can start to see the perks of a £4.50 bottle from the local super market.
But good wine doesn’t stop in France. In fact some of the best wines come from across the world, and they don’t cost the same amount as a small car.
