So guys, I was wondering what you all think about the growing wine trend in Poland? Any converts here?

The reason I'm asking is I've been given a marketing project to do for uni and as I don't speak Polish I figured this would be the best place to come 8-)

any feedback would be helpful but if you can be arsed i've written out 10 questions which would take about 5 minutes to answer

It would be immense to get some replies

Cheers

QUESTIONS:

1. Where do you buy wine?

2. How often do you buy wine?

3. When do you drink wine?

4. Where do you drink wine?

5. Do you feel there is a substantial difference in quality between wine and Vodka in the same price range?

6. Which countries’ wines have the best reputation in Poland?

7. What comes to mind when you think of South American wines?

8. Can you distinguish between South American and Chilean wines?

9. In an expensive bar, would you choose wine or a different drink (if different, please state which)?

10. What factors would make you consider trying a new wine?

1. Where do you buy wine?
Online.
2. How often do you buy wine?
Every three months or so.
3. When do you drink wine?
A bottle a week or so.
4. Where do you drink wine?
Home and at restaurants.
5. Do you feel there is a substantial difference in quality between wine and Vodka in the same price range?
Yes: the vodka will be far far better.
6. Which countries’ wines have the best reputation in Poland?
I can’t really say, wouldn't like to speak for Poland.
7. What comes to mind when you think of South American wines?
It’s usually got a better price/quality ratio than European wines.
8. Can you distinguish between South American and Chilean wines?
Isn’t Chile in South America?
9. In an expensive bar, would you choose wine or a different drink (if different, please state which)?
I wouldn’t have wine, the price is too high and it’s hard to get good stuff by the glass. I’d probably go for something with vodka.

10. What factors would make you consider trying a new wine?
Who is suggesting it to me (and why).

cheers for the replies so far

just to clear this up, i do know chile is in south america ;) i was trying to establish whether people think of chilean wine as simply a new world wine, or whether south american or chilean wines have their own reputation.

do either of you by any chance know any forums / wine communities where id get a good response (i.e. above 50 replies)? i could get the questions translated into polish so this isnt a problem.

nice one

1. Where do you buy wine?
supermarkets and specialist wine merchants

2. How often do you buy wine?
usually every month

3. When do you drink wine?
in the evening (not every evening!)

4. Where do you drink wine?
at home & out

5. Do you feel there is a substantial difference in quality between wine and Vodka in the same price range?
Do you mean per unit? Per bottle? Obviously I get a lot more alcohol for my 50zl, but for that price even in Poland I'd say a bottle of wine is slightly higher quality.

6. Which countries’ wines have the best reputation in Poland?
France, Italy

7. What comes to mind when you think of South American wines?
Chile

8. Can you distinguish between South American and Chilean wines?
No

9. In an expensive bar, would you choose wine or a different drink (if different, please state which)?
If the wine list is interesting and I didn't want to get drunk too quickly, I'd choose wine

10. What factors would make you consider trying a new wine?
I'll usually try a new wine that isn't chardonnay, cab-sav, merlot or shiraz.

1. Where do you buy wine?
In a good assorted off license
2. How often do you buy wine?
5-6 times a month
3. When do you drink wine?
One glass with dinner every night
4. Where do you drink wine?
At home with friends, alone or in restaurants
5. Do you feel there is a substantial difference in quality between wine and Vodka in the same price range?
Don't know, to me most wodka tastes the same, only Zobrowka tastes more gross (without the apple juice) while there is a huge difference in tastes where it concerns wine. And a good wine may cost a little.

6. Which countries’ wines have the best reputation in Poland?
Don't know, should be French, but then again I can't speak for Poland
7. What comes to mind when you think of South American wines?
Argentina, Chile
8. Can you distinguish between South American and Chilean wines?
Chile is in South America, therefore Chilean wines are South American, but yes I taste difference in the several kinds of wine coming from there.

9. In an expensive bar, would you choose wine or a different drink (if different, please state which)?
All bars here in Dublin are kinda expensive. Depends a bit in what mood I am and the ambience, so I can't tell beforehand.

10. What factors would make you consider trying a new wine?
Curiosity, recommendations, the label, reputation.

My favourite, yet nearly unaffordable (in PL and IRL - in NL prices of wine are very reasonable) if you have a good one, is Chablis, but when I want a quick drink of wine, I also like a German Rieslinger or even a Graves Superieur. They are nice and sweet, perfect for summer nights.
