You call that wine?!

A funny blog post about vinegar pretending to be wine, from Midlife Dramas in PyjamasWent to local pub quiz with the girls – just to reinforce the venue, I did say PUB quiz.

Got there early to stock up on alcohol. Went to bar to order what would be first of several bottles of red wine.

Isn’t that what a pub’s supposed to serve? Wine?

They had two bottles – no, not two bottles behind the bar, and the rest in the cellar – two bottles in the entire pub.

Aghast looks were passed between us. To add insult to injury, one of the bottles we were being offered was half empty. So the reality of the situation was that they had one and a half bottles of red wine – on the entire premises.

I asked how long it had been opened, to which the answer came back, “No idea.” Helpful. “I’d like to taste it please,” I requested.

A glass was produced and a mouthful poured in. Said small amount was tipped into my mouth, registered on my taste buds then promptly spat back out again. Nice vinegar for your chips love, but under no circumstances could that noxious liquid you’re trying to fob us off with be described as red wine.

We ordered g&ts instead, forced down several packets of cheap crisps and came last in the quiz.

We’ve vowed never to set foot in the place again.
