    Hi all, we will be coming home on the Santander Ferry to Plymouth middle of June, where is the best place to load up on wine before getting on the Ferry? Cheers!

    Any wine warehouse within 5 miles of a port will be overpriced. They know they have you by the short and curlies as next stop is the boat.

    Aldi & Lidl are OK :)

    But last year we tried Carrefour and got 100 bottles for £200. Slightly better quality than Lidl and Aldi.

    But at those prices, who cares ;)

    We did try a few plastic bottles and a bit rubbish. But when we have big parties, we put them out at the end when nobody cares about quality

    you must have been careless .
    what a waste of nice wine .
    i do like the lidl conde noble . but i also like aldi,s bonus . both 59cents .
    mind the mercadonna one will do as well.
    bit like beer argus red in litre bottles or 18 small cans for peanuts is a nice evenings drink . cant drink 18 cans though , not in one go. ha ha .
    drinking some argus at moment mmmmm. thought i was in spain with dbk.
