World Book Day
World Book Day - what best therefore to pair with my wonderful Luca Veste 'The Dying Day' ? The equally great Casillero De Diablo 'Devil's Cellar' from Co Operative . Apparently the story is that the winemaker who developed this back 100 years ago wished to...

Wee Drammie anyone?
I so enjoy Burns Night - so looking intensely at single malts and it occurred to me that a more affordable scotch must be around somewhere. Mustn't it? Suitably armed with drammie glass, pen and paper I set myself the task of sampling supermarket own brands...

Fair Trade Wines

Medieval Mulled Wine or potus ypocras
