A bottle (or 5) for the weekend

Post by PaulinLondon » 17 Feb 2006, 19:55

Have bought a very nice bottle of red vino from Sainsburys for about £5.99.

It is called "Ravens Wood" Lodi 2003 and is made by Ravenswood in the USA.

Why ? Because it has a fab picture of three ravens in a circle on it ! :twisted:

Have I tasted it yet ? No. Will I ? Yes. :twisted:

Have a fab weekend all.

F*cking hate wine. Been dabbeling in it a bit lately, cos the women like that (i think?), but picked up a bottle of red by mistake the other day - cost a fiver, but would rather put it in a skip then drink it. red wine is evil.

Gee Paul, that's about the same price here as well! Yes, the 3 Ravens did bring a smile.

It's more a case of "Water water everywhere and ner a drop to drink". :grin:

Don't you just love Saturday nights?

The last two nights I've been playing a gig backing another American bluesman - lots of booze available, terrible really, but it has to be done. Last night I was downing the Stella onstage and throwing the empties over my shoulder Begby stylie.

Hangovers can go to bollocks.

Marcoshark - good to see you are able to get some of the same stuff out there too ! I downed the bottle over the weekend and I am going to get some more. It's good stuff !

Had a relatively booze free weekend. Friday I went to a gig and got pissed on Guinness. Saturday I started drinking in me local at 1pm and finished around 7pm. Sunday had just 1 bottle of Leffe.

My word today has been tough. Three day bender and then a Monday morning to contend with. Dunno how I've managed to keep going. :(
