To give you an idea of what this looks like my wife took a photograph of me this afternoon in my local Waitrose store. I did a quick estimate of how many bottles were on sale, and bearing in mind the bottles on each shelf are three deep on average, the picture shows about 2,000 bottles.
As well as counting them I had a look at some of the labels and many of these wines were my favourites, especially the South African Sauvignons and some of the Champagnes. Do I wish I had spent the last four years drinking my way through these shelves instead of having water, tea and lime and soda? No Way! The bottles might be nice to look at and admire, but I will keep my health, my sanity and my life thank you! I duly made my way to the Waitrose café for a latte courtesy of my MyWaitose card.
