Hi Pete

You will find it will be locally supped wine ,P is a wine drinker and enjoyed the wine on kuredu ,you don't seem to see anyone complaining about the wine in the reviews ;) so I am assuming its good quality on the resorts

Good luck

Some of the islands we have visited the wine has that slight sherry taste, however on Biyadhoo it was fine. I think your wife will only have a problem if she only drinks a particular sort of wine, say Pinot Grigio, but if she will drink a house white, then she shouldn't have a problem.

The white wine was IMO undrinkable. I only drink wine but was unable to drink the white at biyadhoo. Had to drink the red. The white tasted of sherry... A bad sherry .

Pete, I agree with Paul - the white is not good at all (not helped by not being properly chilled) but the red is ok. Each time we go back I always have a glass of the white to try, to see if it's improved at all but it never does!

The house wine is included in the AI. Otherwise they do have a reasonable choice of wines on the list (seem to remember seeing Hardys?) but they are expensive - upwards of $30 a botte.

Not being a connoisseur, I've only ever ordered the House Wines and have to say that I've found both red and white to be perfectly drinkable. But then I find that on holiday I can tolerate wines that I definitely wouldn't touch with a barge pole at home. Think it's all to do with being too relaxed to care!

I'm with SL in that I have had no complaints about the white wine at Biya although I only tend to have a single glass before or with dinner. If I do find a wine too tart I usually make it into a spritzer with soda or sprite.

Last June the house white was a tolerable Italian wine. The November before, it was something else entirely, which was preferable. But as my learned companion remarked, 'It's just a question of re-educating the taste-buds'. As the wine is served by the glass, the bottle sometimes gets left out of the 'fridge meaning that it's often served tepid. Ask the bar staff nicely and they'll put a couple of glasses in the freezer for you!
