Saw this cheeky number on the winelist in a Dublin restaurant last night. Unavoidably, great sport was had at the waiter’s expense. Phnarr….
Via wine app Vivinio:
The wine present would have had to pair well with traditional Seder fare, which includes: maror or chazeret, a type of bitter herb; charoset, a sweet, brown, pebbly paste of fruits and nuts; karpas, a vegetable (usually parsley or celery) that is dipped into salt water before eating; zeroa, a roasted lamb shank bone or chicken wing; and beitzah, a hard-boiled egg.

The recession is well and truly over lads. Just got this wrong number text:
Good Afternoon, I tried calling you earlier. In reply to your call earlier regarding Lafite 2012. I will hold the price I offered to you last year. €2310 per case of 6 bottles. Let me know. Regards.
In fairness, it’s cheaper than last year.
Unless you insist.

Silly to look at.

A comprehensive varietal guide by Pop Chart Lab, available as a 100 x 70cm print. To wit:
A genealogical investigation into the connections between every major variety of wine, this family tree of grapes decants and demystifies the ancestry of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Riesling and many, many more. Whether you’re an inveterate viticulturalist or an armchair oenophile, this color-coded chart will help fill in the blancs, pinpointing countries of origin and tracing the long and winding roads between hundreds of varieties of vino.
No Bucky, sadly.
