This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Citrus Wine - Eighth Bottle (B1), 15-17th August 2012

This was a thoroughly satisfactory mid-week bottle of wine. It has been a rare week where I have been at home every night and thus was on cooking duties for most of them. The baked trout was furthest outside my comfort zone, the garden vegetable based tortilla most within it. And Nigella's Involtini was both the fiddliest and the flashiest.

Other events of note: we have been looking after a friend's rabbit all week who does little but shake in terror and produce pellets. Less annoying than the cats, certainly, but not nearly as interesting.

None of this, of course, has anything to do with citrus wine, which was its usual tasty self, and which I finished whilst watching The Best of Men on i-player: a lovely and affecting drama about the origins of the Paralympics.


  1. I saw that drama too! Abso fab - never knew Eddie Marsan had it in him (well, he was pretty good in 'Vera Drake' but not a patch on his performance as Dr German-bloke. Hope you're well!

  2. It was good, wasn't it? Eddie Marsan looks like such a thug generally, but strangely didn't in 'The Best of Men'. And I loved the bit where he and his wife were dancing to 'Jeepers Creepers'. Such a small moment, but it spoke greatly about their relationship.
