Vinho Verde

A very nice aperitif in the sunny garden before dinner, voce concorda?

ROF is on the Chin Chin?

Surprisingly on-brand East London. You'll all be out spending hot days in London Fields soon. 

Driving wine, as my mate calls it.  Don't know where people get sweet from, it's a lovely summer drink and the lower alcohol content helps one pace oneself over the long afternoons and evenings. 

Can't beat a nice glass of Casal Garcia with some smoked almonds after a hard day's sunbathing and playing with the kids in the pool

Not a fan of VV but smoked almonds - oh my!!  Does anyone know where to get good ones from - not too spenny as I eat a lot of them.

I think Chill's catastrophically wrong judgement of whether VV is sweet or dry explains a helluva lot about all his other contributions to ROF...

Anyone know what Vino da Vinci is like? I think it exists.

There is a line in an Elbow song that goes 'The Vino Da Vinci will flow like a river in spring' that plays in my head whenever I hear some good news - maybe I should try and find enough for at least a dribble
