Second cheapest wine

Marketplace Contributor Jul 10, 2012

How much do you spend on a bottle of wine?? We recently examined what goes in to pricing a bottle of wine on Marketplace Money and you might be surprised to learn that it’s not all about taste and quality, there supply and demand, the quality of the glass used to make the bottle, the lable, and of course the cost of labor back at the vinyard. But nothing captures the zeitgeist of wine pricing today than this recent video from the sketch comedy website CollegeHumor.com.
