Joanna Simon admits she dislikes the low alcohol "nanny tendency as much as anybody," but concedes it makes sense to know how much you are drinking given the stronger wines available nowadays. And for all those ridden by guilt by their weekend activities, she helpfully points out a 250ml wine glass is only one fluid ounce off a half pint. It's not all doom and gloom though, as Simon suggests consumers swat up on low-alcohol wines. Ctes de Gascogne, Riesling, English and German wines, Vinho Verde, Australian Semillon, Prosecco, Cava and Txakoli from Spain all feature on the worthy wine drinkers list.
