The last of the summer whine, indigenous, prodigenous, avel mar plek, perfidious idiocy courtesy of our overlords, amen

You have my sympathies. My current tipple is a delightful light fruity white from Rueda at £2.47 per 75cl bottle. Cheaper wine down to 40p per litre brick is available (and many drink it!) but the cheapest is only really fit for cleaning baths and toilets. There is some quite good cider from Asturias in the North, but it's not quite as good as the best from the West Country in the UK, and here in the South of Spain is relatively expensive compared to the local wines.

Yes, I like that Cidre from Northern Spain and Basquelands in particular, I was thoroughly humiliated by a bar tender who stood on a step ladder to refill my glass in Donestia thus forcing a "head" on to the drink - pure theatre at the cost of my pride; quickly restored after witnessing fresh happless victims, I also accepted what I thought to be a sample of Basque Cider, which I gulped in one, only to be charged a euro, I was expecting my host to be looking for a nod of approval before pouring a descent measure!
