I get it. Everyone wants something for cheap. Well, not everybody. There are still those of us who want good quality. And there are still some of us who know that good quality comes with a price. A big one. Not a cheap one. Because, the truth is, like any good business, you sell high quality stuff for big prices even if it cost you nothing to make.
So, here is what I don't get. Most people drink wine purely for pleasure. Why would you buy cheap wine? As someone who worked in that business, most of everything below $12 is hit-or-miss; mostly miss. Most of everything below $6 is gross. If anyone every says to you, "It delicious. And only TWO DOLLARS!" Run. Run fast. Their trying to fool you. Especially since they have fooled themselves.
You know, nothing worthwhile is cheap anymore. It either is a bad knock-off of something that will break sooner than you want. Or it's made out of mediocre materials that will cause more harm than pleasure. It's funny how most of America has fooled itself into believing that good stuff comes cheap. It never does. It never will.
You want good wine? Pay up. Trust me. It's far worth it. It's a far more pleasurable experience. And wouldn't you rather have a truly amazing experience for $15 than a pretend one for $6? I would. Later.
