UK Excise Duty is a fixed cost set annually in the Chancellor’s Budget and charged in bands depending on the alcoholic strength of the wine. For still table wines between 5.5% and 15% abv, the government takes £2.00 for every 75cl bottle as duty. As you can see, the value of the wine you get in a bottle costing £9.99 is 250% higher than what you get in a £5.99 bottle, even though the price increase is only 50%. Therefore spending a little more actually gets you a much better value wine.
