Alex Ferguson over wijn

"When I got older, I used to take a sweet Sherry. That was my drink when I was about 30, and then I started taking a glass of red wine at about 32."…
"I remember my [wedding] anniversary, at about 33, and I bought a bottle of wine for £15. I brought it home and my wife Cathy said: “how much did you pay for that?” I said £15. “Fifteen pounds!”, she said, “are you off your head?’’At first, I was buying all the recommendations, but they weren’t really making money. So, around 2000 I concentrated all my money on big stuff, like Pétrus, Domaine de la Romanée- Conti, Lynch-Bages and Lafite-Rothschild.It’s not just Burgundy and Bordeaux. My drinking wine would be Tignanello.

I’ve got a lot of Bâtard-Montrachet at home but it never gets used. If I was at a big dinner I wouldn’t refuse it, but I find a lot of white wine too acidic.José [Mourinho] promised me Barca Vehla and brought something different. I gave him stick for it, so the next time he brought Barca Vehla. It was stupid, but he’s fine." Interview met de voormalige manager van Manchester United op Decanter.com.
