Amazing. Are you still involved, or now a purchaser like the rest of us?A man of my own heart. I ended up the head auctioneer of Christie’s Wine & Cigar department, having worked there for 20 years. Hence building my own wine room and cigar room. Of course, classy cars just go along with my beliefs..
Excellent idea. I considered some of that this evening (Papa Figo) but went for some Coteaux du Layon instead.Ribera Del Duero for me this evening.... yum, yum, yum...
Fancy another steak and Ribena night in Forest Hill?I read this as ribena...
The Ribera del Duero is Portuguese... best thing about Portuguese wine is that it's almost all really good indeed and I get mixed cases shipped over at pretty much the price you'd pay there. Including a couple of bottles of easy quaffing port and some good plonks of all colours, still and sparkling, and all for less than £100. If you just want the plonk then don't pay more than €5 a bottle and your tastebuds will be happy.Both new names to me.
I heard a brilliant story about cigars a while back.I’m still involved but just trading/broking old or rare stuff to private clients mostly.
