Is it just me or are there more people than normal who are off the booze for Lent? Now fiving up vodka or kahlua or that weird blue Bols stuff is one thing, but giving up wine? Seems a bit extreme. I presume the country hasn't been struck down with a new strain of religious fervour, so what is it?
In any case, with the weather finally a bit milder, the daffodils poking their heads out of the ground and the clocks going forward tomorrow night, I am finally looking forward to Easter.
Easter means lamb and lamb means nice red - typically Bordeaux, Chianti or a Rioja or Ribera del Duero from Spain. I will have more information on Monday regarding great deals for Easter (and beyond) on cracking wines such as Pesquera, Chateau Noaillac and a nice Italian, yet to finalised....
More on Monday.
