It has to be red and it has to be French. Although I quite enjoy the odd glass of rose which no-one seems to have mentioned.

Evil Pixie - did you get to Safeways in the end? Might just have to make another trip on the way home tonight and stock up - always feels good drinking a FREE bottle!!!!! Can't drink toooooooo much tonight as I don't want to put myself at more of a disadvantage then usual for the 10k on Sunday - then I shall have a crate or two to shellabraaate.

I mentioned Rose a long way back - I'm currently a big fan of White Grenache. Very nice.

Anyone need to know that I'm having a day off?

Just got up,having slept off a rather nice botte of red (Elderton Shiraz) and am off for a jaunt in the Peak District.

Enjoy your day's work everybody!

Oh, Pixie Pixie I had some scrummy Rosemount last night - Maybe I should be called "Evil Zebedee" now as I am now planning to maybe get some vino in for this afternoon (Friday afternoon's are fab for wine-ding down with a few bottles with your work mates!). Anyway, you don't need a car, get a back pack and two sturdy bags (so you are well balanced!) and you can get quite a bit for a jolly!!!!!!! BOING BOING - time for bed said Zebedee,.......

For me I guess red is my fave but I love chilled Chardonnay on a summer's evening at the bottom of the garden. I know it's sacriledge but occasionally Mrs RB and I like to put an olive stuffed with an almond in the glass.

Drink the wine then eat the olive and almond. Yum!

However, I also like a fine white Burgundy. I have just splashed out a little on a nice bottle of Chassagne Montrachet and I'm trying to think up an excuse to drink it. (I know I really don't need one but it is a little on the pricey side.

Otherwise, big reds, Australian, South African and almost anywhere. I love Meerlust from S.A. and some of their Cabernets and blends are just SO BIG!

Also Barolo when I fancy a little treat. Wolf Blass from Australia do some nice fat reds too.

You can't beat Amarone della Valpolicella. Not just the ordinary Valpolicella - the Amarone is something else - it's made from sun dried grapes so a really smooth and intense damson flavour. It's worth the £10 a bottle, believe me.

Chassagne Montrachet is great! Pouilly Fuisse as I've already mentioned is also good. RB... Tried the Louis Jadot one?

I slept 12 hours last night after one glass (after 10 miler!) I'm steering clear!
