Greetings

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.

Ginger Wine - Second Bottle (4), 28th December 2013

This bottle was the first of a four bottle night. Between four of us.

Claire and I were down in Cambridge spending a couple of nights at Duncan's. He has a wonderful house, reminiscent of a three sided Roman villa (complete with hypercourse) and mostly open plan. The four bottles were a reward for a seven mile walk from Little Thetford to Ely and back. Cambridgeshire is entirely flat, not a hillock to be seen in any direction. Ely Cathedral was splendid - its painted octagonal tower being the outstanding feature. It ticks another cathedral off my list, too.

None of this has anything to do with Ginger wine, though. It was a good choice of first bottle - you wouldn't want any food with it, owing to its sweetness. The ginger flavour is about right and on the whole a very tasty wine.
