    Advice on Wine Cabinets

    Not to store wine but to keep ready for serving. We tend to get a wine delivery every 4-6 weeks, 36-48 bottles mixed red, white and sparkling. The wine rests for a week to recover from shipping then we enjoy! Serving at the correct temperature has always been a bit hit 'n miss and a chore...

    Cooking with wine ?

    I know that the forum has a number of 'foodies' so it must have a reasonable amount of professional chefs or serious amateurs. Yesterday, I made a nice risotto as lunch for SWMBO and myself. Obviously, this involved opening a bottle of white wine. As I was driving later that day, I popped...

Noise increases/decreases with engine speed. noise is evident whether car in motion or static, in gear or...

    Majestic wine, couldn't buy a single bottle gin ?

    Odd experience this evening. Popped in to Majestic for a bottle of Gordon's and some tonic and was told they don't do spirits by the single bottle as they have a "case"policy. I was however allowed to mix the gin with 5 bottles of wine to make a case of 6. Bizarre I thought. Anyway...

    Tesco & Alcohol (wine!)

    Interesting timing considering the very recent debate on cheap booze but at the risk of being judged on my vinicutural tastes you may like to know Tesco are doing a 3 for 2 promo on wine; Some prices have gone up of course but if you look around the deals you may find a bargain (or 3) Just...
