Best way to get rid of cheap wine?

Recommended Posts

We seem to have acquired via various house guests a number of cheap bottles of wine that I have no intention of drinking.

What’s the best way to get rid of this? I am not sure charity shops will take it and there are not enough local raffles. Crisis Centre? Any other suggestions?

Leave the bottles uncorked, it will turn into red wine vinegar.

Not a bad idea!  I like a chemistry experiment.

Duh.  When you're invited to other people's houses you take it round as a gift.

If it's rubbish wine just take it when you're invited by people that you don't like very much.

You could take it to a local care home for the staff Xmas party.

Sounds like wine snobbery and 1st world dilemmas! I doubt most blindfolded would be able to tell difference between a selction of Aldi/Lidl's finest and very expensive wines. A bit of colour dye in some white wine would fool most!

Jolly good of you.

One does what one can, it's important to look after the lower orders.

Think that’s what i’ll do or to the Tesco drop off.

Whilst I liked the idea of giving it to Crisis, some of their customers don’t need to be encouraged on the alcohol front.

Aldi and Lidl do actually stock some decent wine. 

Whilst it may be a bit of snobbery on my part, I’m not drinking to get lashed and would rather have something smooth and aged that something harsh that will be guaranteed to give me a headache.

Try drinking it, some cheap wines can be as good as other expensive wines can be bad. 

Yep, or just give it away to the local winos. Until you have tasted it you don`t really know if it is good or bad anyway?

A documentary from a few years ago showed that the people who selected the Queen`s wines failed badly on just such a test......

Cook rib of beef roast. Reduce the red wine to a treacle gravy mixed with the beef drippings. Consume.

beef burguinon or coq au vin is ace with red wine sauce.

all you need is sauce mix/seasoning, a couple of onions and some carrots. 12 hours in the pot and the meat is ultra tender and marinated.serve with a jacket spud. lovely!

mulled wine!. you can pick up the spices cheap enough,and you just need to throw t in the microwave with the spicy teabag thing.bring to high heat(not boil) and stand for 10 mins.. sweeten with honey or sugar to taste....proper winter warmer and works with even the most rancid reds!
