Default Your Quest

This is your quest.
Are you brave enough to take up the gauntlet?
Yes? Good then lets get started.

Directions. Your local ASDA store, the wine aisle.

You are looking for. A bottle labeled "La Comida"

Your clues.
Vino De Mesa Tinto

The rules are as follows
1. You ignore the price tag.
2. You allow the bottle to breathe for at least an hour.
3. With an open mind taste the vino.
4. Tell us what you think.

We await your reports.

Well JJ I've tried your wine. It was right up my street well it wasn't really it was in my all new ASDA!!! Galashiels is about to enter the 20th Century!!!! :lol
At under 3 squid it's a nice little table wine that didn't lift the varnish off the coffee table.
Now who can I give the other 11 bottles to for christmas???
Let us know if you find any other bargins.

Take care.

Here’s another quest, track down you local Majestic wine warehouse to find an excellent sherry for Christmas. Pedro Ximenez Viejo Napoleon NV from Hidago, excellent value at £9.49, buy 2 at £8.99 each.
Only catch is you have to purchase a minimum of 12 bottles, but hey it is Christmas, and they do have a good range of spanish wine.

"Sun-dried Pedro Ximenez grapes are used for this luscious concoction. Concentrated and full this wine exhibits irresistible flavours of sweet prunes and raisins. An excellent pudding wine and also good as an aperitif."

Great with hot mince pies and vanilla ice-cream, just poured over the top, delicious, or better still just drink it!
