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.

Redcurrant - Bottle A6, 13th January 2012

It is with great surprise and pleasure that I can announce that this bottle was Quite Nice. Not the delicious redcurrant of 2009, you understand, but far better than any yet of this vintage. I cannot explain why.

We drank it on an unexciting Friday night where the menu was 'The Sick and the Weak' in a mustard white sauce topped by Thursday's excess mashed potato and cheese, and the activivity was 'General Sitting Around'. I am reading the second volume of Stephen Fry's autobiography; The Fry Chronicles; which s engrossing and gossipy, so much of the wine was drunk to that. Few could acuse me of having a rock and roll lifestyle.


  1. I don't know what 'The Sick and the Weak' is, but it made me laugh out loud! Hope all well. Carol

  2. 'The Sick and the Weak' is basically what has been lurking in the fridge for far too long, and needs using up. Now. We often have that on a Friday night. And all is well, thanks.
