The Cost of Wine

When it comes to wine, the question is often raised whether a $150 bottle of wine tastes better than a $15 bottle of wine. The answer is quite complicated, because preferences for wine are palate-driven, and truly subjective. There are many factors that contribute to the cost of wine in the bottle, including the variety or varieties of grapes used to make the wine, the region where the grapes are grown, how the grapes are cropped, the age of the grapevines, how the grapes are harvested, how long the wine is aged, and in what medium, and how much demand there is for the wine.
