And a white wine for my wife…

And a white wine for my wife…
How on earth can people drink wine by the bottle in pubs? I’m not objecting to the consumption of wine by pubgoers (although, if beer is good enough for me, it ought to be good enough for most people). It’s just that wine makes you very drunk, very quickly. I was out last night and it only took three or four glasses of acrid Pinot Grigio for me to be slurring my words.

In an unrelated development, there’s a new advertising campaign in the Underground for German wine (all of it). Apparently, it is now not all sickly sweet Liebfraumilch. The revolutionary concept that is being offered is dry German white wine. Sorry Meinen Freunden – I’m afraid that I’m still not that tempted.
