Cheap RosÚ Wine in Coop

I got a pleasant surprise in Coop this evening - Mateus rosÚ wine on special offer: CHF 5.30 a bottle. At home its usually EUR 11/12 per bottle, so I was quite pleased with myself

(Disclaimer: I dont know how much it normally costs in Coop but I still thought it was a bargain you couldnt beat with a stick)

Re: Cheap RosÚ Wine in Coop

Matheus is the Portuguese Rose ?

it is good, I like it, however a swiss guy I know that poses as a wine connaisseur, told to me it was just cheap wine.

Who cares, drink it cool and under the sun !

Yes, its the Portuguese rosÚ. And yes, it's very cheap on the Iberian peninsula (2 or 3 euro a bottle), which is why I was so surprised and pleased to see it just as cheap here

If you drink cheap wine, you get a bad hangover in the morning it is better to invest in a better, more expensive wine, and have no hangover

Re: Cheap RosÚ Wine in Coop

You can find many cheap, but very good argentinian and chilean wines at the coop.

Some Malbecs from Argentina and Cabernet Sauvignons from Chile that are also on the CHF 6 range.

I don't remember exactly the names but I'll check them out and post here.

Two worth mentioning but that are not that cheap but still good priced are ""Casillero del Diablo" from chile I think it is around 12, and "Gato Negro" that should be 9.

Cheers !

I second the recommendation for Casillero del Diablo - even if they did sponsor Hell's Kitchen

Heading home to Montreal we were always happy to find those liquor depots conveniently located directly on the Interstate, for our driving pleasure.

NH State Liquor Store
Liquor Store 73
Interstate 95 South
Hampton, NH 03843

NH State Liquor Store
Liquor Store 76
Interstate 95 North
Hampton, NH 03843

NH State Liquor Store
Liquor Store 66
Interstate 93 North
Hooksett, NH, 03106

Yes folks, directly on the highway.

Re: Cheap Ros´┐Ż Wine in Coop

Is that the wine in the curious shaped bottle? I can remember (vaguely) how hip and cool it was to have parents who had transformed, as if by magic, a Mateus rose bottle into a candlestick and the more dried wax in different colours you had the better.

For the last 3 years Denner has a summer special with two bottles AND two champaine glasses for 10 CHF.

A great example of rather useless knowledge: The bottles are called "Bocksbeutel", an old German term...

The phrase was coined by a mate of mine and other drinks that do the job (allegedly) are pink Cava - preferably sweet, Bailey's and that awful coconut concoction mixed with pineapple juice.

Seriously now, there is a wonderful white in Co-op on special offer, Kendermans, it's a dry Reisling from Germany, 5.50 a bottle I think, we bought a few cases it's that good. Also Co-op has some good Spanish RosÚs, can't remember the names but I'll take a look this evening
