I also bet it made you laugh. Because it is so funny for a wine lover to say ‘my friend, I suffer from the disease called novinophobia, so please refill my glass with fine wine!’ And although this makes us laugh, there are a few real […]

Machine harvest 2016 – Saint Colombe, Bordeaux

Machine Harvest 2016 experience by Wine Lady

TODAY has started very early, as about 4 o’clock in the morning M. woke me up saying (shouting, to be exact) that he is dying. He couldn’t feel his foot; he couldn’t move it, he could barely walk! So since the very early morning I was up and ready to not-my-work, as during the harvest there are no weekends off, so M. works both Saturdays and Sundays. Being his ‘personal taxi driver’ meant I had to work […]

I have a lot of fun with popular proverbs, which took on a new meaning and became my famous proverbs for wine lovers ;) […]

(Wynns.com.au)       Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was a dark, clear purple coloured wine with dark red hues. The aroma was potent […]

2Bobule – Once again innocently about wine

a wine film review of 2Bobule - innocently about wine, delivered to you by Wine Lady

I loved the Bobule (2008) film. It was not only funny but also inspiring, idyllic and simply beautiful. I was very excited while the sequel, 2Bobule, came out. I’ve been waiting for another dose of great humour, Czech wine, and beautiful Moravian landscapes. After the first film, my expectations were very high. I think they were too high…     Let’s start from the beginning: The Story After Honza took over his grandfather’s vineyards, he’s trying to […]
