We end off this rather cold (in Cape Town) month of June with some light-hearted warming “factoids” about wine drinkers.  Did you know that:

  • 1 in 5 adults reckon they are a wine connoisseur and do their best to convince friends, family and colleagues of their vinicultural prowess
  • 1 in 10 people always order expensive wine as they believe it will taste better than its cheaper equivalentChoice of Premium Wines
  • 1 in 10 people tend to opt for wines with a higher alcohol content because they think they are better quality
  • 58% of people never bother to alter the wine they drink to complement their food (but only 14% say they just don’t know enough about wine to know what goes with what)
  • 32% of wine drinkers say they prefer it when someone orders wine for them because it takes the pressure off
  • 30% of wine drinkers say they find it patronising if someone else tries to take control of the wine list when out at a restaurant
  • 1 in 12 people complain that the waiter hasn’t poured them enough wine – when the intention was for them just to taste it
