The Drinks Business – Top 10 Wine Faux Pas
I thought this was a great post which covers a lot of great misconceptions about wine. I loved the intro that wine is for everyone, don’t be scared about saying what you think of a wine. Who cares if Mr. 100-Point-Parker said it’s rubbish, have your own opinion. And hey if you’ve ever considered mixing red wine and coke, well then you should definitely read this post.
So I have actually tried a couple of these (Sting’s and ACDC’s wines) and they’re not too shabby, would def like to get my hands on a bit of Drew’s and Brad’s vino though! Whose wine would you most like to try from this celebrity wine producer list? Leave a comment below!
