Accidental Sommelier

January 4, 2015

I was just leaving Marks and Spencer when a bemused Italian granny stopped me and asked for advice about which wine her grand daughter should buy.

I looked at them both.

“What’s the occasion?”

“It’s her friend,” says the granny looking at her well-dressed grand daughter.

“It’s just a gift?”

“Yes, it’s a gift for her friend,” says granny proudly.

I raise an eyebrow and nod: “Then it should be red.”

As I cross the road to my car I reflect that I know nothing whatsoever about wine.
