Why is wine an afterthought at many Gastropubs?

I really enjoy most Gastopubs that I frequent. However one thing that has always disappointed me about many of them is the quality and selection of wines that they provide. It is particularly odd to me because of not only the high level of attention given obviously to the food and beer but also to the selection of whisky, decor (and of course the jukebox). And it isn't just the selection but the condition of the wine particularly those provided by the glass which are often sour and/or too warm. To me wine should either be given the same level of attention as everything else or be abandoned.
So why is wine at many Gastropubs an afterthought?
