SWIRLS: Plastic wine bottles, 7-Eleven, supermarket wine

SWIRL: Letplastic wine bottles’s just admit it. The idea of plastic wine bottles is  kind of gross (as pretty as the photo makes them appear), unless you’re on a plane or a train and there’s no choice and you have to take what wine you can get. That said,  plastic does leave less of a carbon footprint because it is so much lighter than glass and burns less fuel in shipping. And it’s catching on in some corners of the wine market. Europe’s biggest manufacturer reports a major increase in production of PET plastic bottles this year over last, with the Japanese market one of the biggest sources of growth, most notably for 2010 Beaujolais nouveau.

SWIRL: 7-Eleven expands its list of proprietSeven elevenary wines with  Cherrywood Cellars, offering a chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and merlot priced at between $7.99 and $8.99. 7-Eleven sells other wines from $3.99 to $9.99. (Convenience Store News)

SWIRL: Buying cheap wine in a supermarket might be everyone’s cup of tea, so to speak, but The Guardian has a useful guide on how to increase your odds of getting a decent bargain bottle. Among the  advice: avoid “funny” labels, look for “private brands” and try less popular grape varieties such as chenin blanc and grenache “before people catch on.”

  8. Lot of global tensions is going on at this time. Japan is expected to pull out its money from the global market as they want to revamp their country now. In current scenario anything can happen in the Share market Investors are advised not to panic and stay invested only safe traders and Stock Tips investors should exit their long positions on every high and one can use every decline as an opportunity to enter market again.
