I usually go for the wine on sale for $5, which is something from the $5-$10 range. It's nice to have a nicer, more distinctive wine every now and then, but more often than not I don't.

i was frightened to death when i checked the prices for wine in the US. Unbelivable expensive for europeans :-( When i am travelling to the US there`s only one wine i really like and which i can get almost everywhere in the world ( bigger cities in bigger supermarkets) That`s the Yellowtail Merlot. You can get it here in germany for 3.99 Euro per bottle ( thats about 5 to 6 Dollar). I never found this wine cheaper than 9.99 Dollar in MIAMI, Fl.

Usually i spend between 8 and 20 Euro per bottle, but you can buy really good wines in the winerys here or in the supermarket, beginning from 4 Euro per bottle. For french, german and italian wines.

At the end of the month we pay it off and know exactly how much we have spent of booze that month...

Melanie thinks our wine is expensive: we think the wine in Canada is more than expensive. We haven't priced it in Germany, cause we have never been there.

We drink a dry white or red wine, usually a Pinor or Arginetina Melbac.There are others as well: During the week we have a couple glasses of boxed wine. The rest of the time we drink bottled wine that runs from $5 to maybe $15 a bottle. I think the average price we pay would be about $7.00 and yes, we usually get it on sale...

To answer the question posted: I pay cash.
To answer the intent of the question: I buy Yago Sangria in this big gallon jug for $20, and a small bottle of brandy for $5.99.

I mix the two together and add fresh lime and lemon slices, sometimes tangerine wedges too. Total cost - around $30 for a gallon, including all the ingredients.

Okay. Let me correct: Wine in the US is more expensive than in Europe but by far not that expensive as in Thailand. I went to some wine stores in phuket and was not able to get a wine under 20$.

I also pay cash and keep it under $20 a bottle. My preference is white merlot and I used to be able to order it at some of our area restaurants. It is no longer served in our area. I do like to try wines from different areas of the world, but I am the only wine drinker in the house, so any more, I seem to be limited to very small bottles.

I think my Pinot Grigio averages between $15-17 a bottle. As for how I pay, I just send my husband up to our local liquor store and tell him to pick up a case.

$10-12 maximum. I usually can't tell the difference anyway, and even if I can, I cannot justify spending much more.

if I had an unlimited budget and could pick anything I want, I'd probably drink French Haute Medoc that would go at $40-45 a bottle.
