Wines of The World

Wines of the world red

Whilst I am not a complete heathen and realise that there are more wines on the market than just Lambrini (almost certainly not a wine), I am not ashamed to admit that my skill-set is firmly in the beer camp (I’d love to go to beer camp) and I, lamentably, do not have a Sideways style encyclopaedic knowledge of all things vino. I am, however, a big fan of Hunter S. Thompson and I can’t help but feel that I am doing everyone’s favourite (or, at least, mine) boozehound a disservice by not brushing up on my wine knowledge (not to mention blocking a whole other inebriation avenue). I also appreciate the banter of the pisshead in Withnail and I, so if you require a secondary reason for my crashcourse in wine, that be it. I am, however, a deeply childish individual with a severe aversion to hard work and learning. With this in mind, it is clear that I am not one who is going to hit the books and and studiously learn about the different wines from all over the world. No, sir, I need visual (and imbibaratory) aids and I think that I’ve found just the trick with these brilliant Wines of the World Bottles. Basically, what I’m saying is, all it takes for me to comprehend that a wine originates from Australia is a koala bear made from a cork. If someone had the time to explain the mechanics of sociology via the medium of cork, I would have done a loooooooot better at university.

Wine from Chile looks pretty miserable.
