Be gentle, first post...

Was shopping in my local Tesco and noticed lots of the wines were 1/2 price. Picked up a number of deals including the Castillo San Lorenzo Rioja which always tends to run out of stock when these deals are on. I grabbed 5 bottles, and various other ones.

Since getting online I noticed the Tesco.com/wine site has loads of deals on boxes of wines. Worth grabbing a few deals if you're a wine fan.

Deal on the Rioja runs out on the 19th of April, so I'm guessing the 1/2 price offer will end then too.

Nice wine and good deal, the wine last year was regularly reduced to £4.99 I think but not seen it reduced for a while .

Nothing against the OP but this is another typical example of Tesco's contempt for their customers, engineering a price increase whilst heralding it as a saving. They do it frequently.
Take a wine normally sold without any offer for £4.99; increase the price to £10.49 for a while and just long enough to avoid breaking the law; then 'reduce' the wine to 'half price' and sell it for £5.24. In effect increasing the price by 5% and possibly increasing sales as well. A win-win situation, - for Tesco.

Tesco wine has become really dear, wife loved Vouvray was always £4.99 but despite Euro exchange rate getting better, now selling the wine at £6.49. 30% increase in 18months

I agree with all you say. Never buy "half-price wines"

Why would you never by half price wines, would you only buy when it is full price then?

I always find it funny when someone who has clearly heard someone say about 'half price wines' not being an offer. You should always look at everything in detail, for instance there are numerous wines that are 'half price' for 80% of the year, these are indeed not on 'offer' but are being sold at their true value. This is not true with all half price offers though. If you drink a certain wine then you will (should) know the value of the grape and the bottle. This means you can really spot an offer.

They are out there.
