That moment when you’re looking around in a wine shop or the booze aisle and think, wow, surely there’s been some kind of pricing cock-up here…? Do they really want to sell it for that? And then you snaffle them all up.
To kick off, here’s mine, although I’m sure there are better stories out there. Back when I was commuting between Yeovil and Bath, I’d often pop into the massive Co-op in Radstock, as it had a pretty good selection. And one day, on the top shelf, was the '08 Potensac with a reduced to clear sticker under it: about £7½. Say what? It was definitely well over £20 the week before. Needless to say, I bought all five. There are two left in the rack, and I still get the smugness whenever I see them.
