Fine Wine - 19 April 2011

With the weather stopping play in the garden (cold and very wet) the last few days, although the promise of sun is on the horizon. I have had to saw some more wood for the petchka as winter has extended into the second half of April. I have also been enjoying some very nice red wine.

I have several wine grapes growing in my garden but they are only two years old an so only produce enough juice for an odd bottle between them. So I have been testing the local stuff and for 2 lev (1 euro) a bottle you just can't really go wrong.

So whilst buying some cat food in the local Bila shop the other day and I stumbled upon a demijon of red wine(5l) for 10 lev. Thinking that the container would come in handy for storing my homemade vintages in the years to come I decided to get myself one.

My new red wine container

The downside being that I have to empty the damn thing before I get the chance to use it. Oh well we all have a cross to bear! Mine just happens to a be a Carbernet Sauvignon variety!

As you can see from the pic I have made a good dent in the contents, the only problem that remains is that I could do with another 10 of them!
