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.

Rhubarb Wine 2018 - Thirteenth Bottle (A2), 18th-24th August 2021

This was very much a mid-week bottle that lasted several days in the fridge. It was okay and served its purpose, but was not a memorable or delicious wine. Medical procedures have figured rather in the timeframe. I won't go into the first one, but everything was fine. On the day the bottle was finished, I went to a new dentist with a toothache. Disaster! Either I shall have to have it pulled or I will have to have a two hour root canal operation followed by a crown. Neither is joyful!

Taken on 24 August to celebrate International Bow-Tie Day


  1. Don't go for the canal...
    Rhubarb wine, now you are talking.. love it nice and sweet, maybe not so good for the teeth!

    1. Thanks Ange - and also for your comment below about the bowtie. I find that the best photos of me don't show the full extent of my face!

      Too late for the warning about the canal. I had it this morning (into this afternoon) and it was not a fun way to spend a day off work. I am feeling a little shaken by the whole thing, but then I am a complete wimp when it comes to physical discomfort.

  2. Very smart bow tie, looks great.
