89/100

line of the day – ‘I’m shockingly handsome and outrageously humourous’

Includes a minor rant about trying new things (which is always a winner with me). Great to see an oddball wine producing country given airtime

    GV – I like the idea of getting wines from all over the world. Seems like the white saved the day.

    QOTD – Napoleon!

    Cyprus… I know nothing about it except that it’s a popular holiday destination!
    I’ve never tasted a wine from there.

    I have just arrived in cyprus on vacation. Watched the episode for some info (as I do many times GV) and yesterday in the supermarket as I had 12 bottles of cyprus wine on the floor, trying to decide which ones to get, I rejected 2 xinisteris. I have decided to return and buy them now.

    thanks

    P.S. I hope the knee surgery goes well and that your back on your feet and on the court soon

    Can’t say I have tried these, have had Greek wines. Would rather have my greens in a salad. http://www.winelx.com
