So, we went to a gig the other night to see the very excellent Editors. Loved the music but the dancing and whooping felt ever-so-slightly self-conscious. Is it me? Anyway, my music-native friend who organised the tickets explained that the term gig is out. It is now called a ‘show’ apparently. Fine if you haven’t had children, but for anyone who spent days – or in my case weeks – waiting for a different kind of ‘show’ I would much rather stick with gig. Far less messy.

This week’s white in the fridge is:
Maurel Vedeau Grenache Sauvignon Blanc 2008, £4.50 per bottle/£27 per case, 50% off at
A gorgeous white blend with the unmistakeable whiff of Sauvignon and lovely green apple notes from the Grenache. Drink well chilled innit.

This week’s red on the side is:
Long Country Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, £4.00 per bottle/£24 per case, 50% off at
A brilliant Chilean red at half price. Not much wrong with that sentence. Blackberries and spice in a glass.

Until next week, bottoms up xx

  1. I popped by to thank you for leaving a comment on my last, rather bleak, blog post. I was in a bad place that evening and the support of you and other bloggers was invaluable. Thank you.

    Anyway, I'm delighted to have stumbled on your brilliant premise for a blog, and will follow with interest! x

  2. Thank you! Whenever you need a personal wine recommendation to get through a bad day promise to let me know xxx
