Sell one at aftermarket and you drink two for next to free. Doesn't everyone deserve to drink top tier Napa cab for free? Don't we all? Of course not. Th...

There’s a lot of great wine out there for reasonable prices. That’s like saying you can’t afford burgundy because drc is too expensive.
I did say there are good wines at lower price points. Just that unfortunately people just starting will never be able to taste them.
