Really, I have no clue. I cannot differentiate between an expensive wine and a cheap one. I could only assume that a wine that taste really bad is pretty cheap.
Yes, as did various Wine Courses, was a member of a Wine Guild, for many years', & participated in the 'McWilliam's Wine Contest', run on International Standards, throughout Australia, which I won!

Don't buy 'cheapies', but don't buy 'Grange' either!

I'm happy to pay approx $15 a bottle, for at home, but will get something much better, when dining-out!

Probably not. There are some cheap wines that I really like and there are some expensive wines that I don't like at all. I go on taste, not so much cost when drinking a glass of wine
Like art taste is subjective. I am with you.

I can tell a really cheap box wine from a better one, but probably not an expensive wine from a mid range one.
Oh! yes.
I can.
Definitely I can as we are regular wine drinkers
I can differentiate between good wine and poor wine. Price isn't always an indicator.
We have consumed some very very good wines in Portugal that were inexpensive by most peoples standards.
For a special cellebration we consumed a $700 bottle of wine followed by a $70 bottle of wine. The second bottle was prefered by each of us.
In good seasons sometimes good wine is put into casks and some cask wine can be reasonably good.
No...to be fair, I don't mind cheap wine and haven't tasted 'expensive' wine. I am very particular with the wine I drink, so haven't moved beyond my comfort zone.

No, I do not drink so I wouldnt have a clue!

Absolutely ! the taste and especially when you swirl the wine in your glass to air it, the viscosity of the wine , in other words the speed in which it settles around the glass will tell you. The slower the better the wine and the better the expensive it is.
I don't drink alcohol so probably not. I have friends who are vintners and they say personal taste comes into it more than price. Just because it is more expensive doesn't make it more palatable.
