Certainly. Didn't mean to scare Lycan off. I just find that wine-tasting experience and knowledge is directly proportional to the resultant cost per bottle. But yes, there are certainly good wines out there for under R100, even under R50 still.Don't let DJK scare you off, there are skilled, local boutique winemakers who make fantastic wine for less than R100 a bottle (thinking Springfield Estate and Saltare).
So go start one - I am all for that idea. A simple win-tasting thread would be brilliant. We do this once a month with about 15 mates - we all get together and do an amateur wine-tasting with el-cheapo wines. More about socialising and getting pissed together than the tannins and bouquet of noses...Hmm, we should get a sticky thread with a list of favorites for others to try.
