No use me investing in wine I don't drink, well apart from say a couple of small glasses of sparkly wine at Christmas dinner.

How do you survive Joan - on 2 glasses od liquid per year. Wine is a basic food staple. Consuming that is not "drinking". It is a lot healthier than all those soft drinks.

My retirement plan is called the Lottery. It works just like any other pension plan: you put money in, and, when you reach your expiry date (figuratively...), you (hopefully) get a bunch of money back.

And in the process you have no fun at all.
Fortunately, I'm someone that can have a good time without chemical stimulants. I don't drink, smoke or use any type of recreational drug (and never have). I still manage to enjoy myself.

I don't drink those either I don't like the taste of alcohol that's the problem, or rather a saving grace as I couldn't afford to drink if I did like it
I only drink coffee.

The one I drink all day every day is Tesco Instant Granules at 47 pence a 100 g jar. I know it's cheap but the amount I drink it needs to be.

I do not really drink alcohol either - except an occasional Armagnac (maybe once per month). I still have a bottle of 40 year old Wisky that was given to my father in 1950 by an English friend. I inherited it and it is still sitting in the rack - unopened. I wonder whether it is still any good after 100 years.

I am, however, amazed that Wine is considered alcohol in some countries. Where I come from it is a food staple. Even children drink it (diluted with water). It is a lot healthier than soft drinks, especially the diat kind which is pure chemistry.

I'll assume you have never had "Mad Dog" 20/20 wine.

Of course calling MD 20/20 wine is akin to calling Everclear a fine Scotch or Irish Whiskey.
