What “Gina” drank on 10.06

I had a very elegant French boyfriend a long time ago who told me that drinking wine with hot soup would crack your teeth! I was very sceptical of that but it comes to mind whenever I sit down to a hot bowl of soup. That being said, the other evening I went round to […]

Chateau Duhart-Milon 1996

In addition to Friday being the commencement of World Cup 2010, it was also the first birthday of our daughter Zöe.

What Fiona McDonald drank on 04.06

Thought I’d take you up on the offer of sharing what I drank… not quite last night, but I successfully avoided my laptop all weekend so have only got around to it today. I’ve been ferreting around in my cellar and came across some wines (quite a few actually!) that should have been drunk a […]
