    I agree...I once had a nice 2 L of wine in Chile that cost 1200 pesos (about 1 pound 50 at the time).

    I have loved Pinot Grigio for ages, and Chardonnay, and cheap white anti-freeze...

    I was very naughty in Blackpool, we went back to the hotel bar, but rather than pay hotel prices I bought a bottle of Lambrini in the offie on the way back and hid it under my chair.

    A couple of weeks ago I even bought, get this, a bottle of Concorde! damn that feels good...

    A white wine for the little lady, if you please.

    'Women, on the other hand, just want to drink it until they feel like singing Wichita Linesman, crying, and/or texting someone they shouldn’t.' :clap:

    That is actually me... usually Whitney as opposed to Wichita, but the sentiment is the same...
    But after last night (or rather this morning) I'm off wine for a while! Seems I can drink a bottle of bacardi and feel all right, but a bottle of wine makes me feel like quite a lot of poo the day after! Am sure this will last all of 5 minutes, or as long as it takes to get to the nearest wine-serving establishment...!:rolleyes:

    Wine makes me frisky! (*blush*)

    Drank a whole bottle of Piat D'or medium white to myself last night along with a bag of Starburst juicy jellies whilst watching Stepford Wives on Front Row,

    t'was marvellous, aaaaaaaaaaa..................

    I have to say that alcohol in general doesn't make me frisky. Outrageously flirty and very very cuddly, but usually nothing more than that.

    Is there something wrong with me, do you think?

    The article's a bit too feminist for my liking. But I'm glad people are drinking wine, it's second on my list of cultured drinks after single malt. Of course French wine is the best - Chateauneuf du Pape thankyouverymuch!

    and me, it affects me more if I have about 3-4 glasses, I usually drink far too much and then just go to slurry/sleepy stage.

    My uncle always told me to put your finger 'up' the bottom of the bottle- and the deeper it goes the nice the wine-

    it has nothing to do with the taste apparently- its just companies wont put cheap wine in an expensive bottle :cool:

    try it....

    Can't drink it, for reasons I shudder even to put down in a PM, and which would probably have me banned for life if I posted them up here...
