I agree, but I'm certain it isn't fake, which is what I was responding to.

FYI, if you like wine and the Hawksmoor, it is 5 corkage on a Monday.

Reading through the responses to the tweets it's amazing how many people either don't get British humour or were whooshed by the restaurant's, "They look pretty similar OK?! " post.

Obviously the bottles look nothing alike, and people seem to think the restaurant are saying they do... I think the winking eye emoji gives it away. To me, classic British humour and probably something I would have wrote at work, and it would have gone over peoples heads here.

I do have to say, thinking about it more, the whole thing does seem to be a publicity stunt. The story seems to have been generated by the restaurant itself, which seems a little suspicious. The whole incident if true could of been swept under the carpet.

My wife brought one of these home from the market yesterday:



I not sure if one drinks it straight from the can like beer, or should pour it into a wine glass?

There was me thinking box wine was as low as you could go!

Wine in cans is becoming increasingly popular. Great for picnics etc. Personally, if you're at home, I'd pour it.

Our CEO here thinks Wine boxes could be the next big thing in the fine wine trade, i.e. supply nicer more expensive white wine in a fridge box that lasts much longer than a bottle once opened.

So it sounds as usual The US is behind the times...

She also brought home some in a carton, like small milk cartons, or like the packaging they do kids drinks in. What could possibly go wrong there!

Been in Rioja for a week, visited 10 wineries.

Trend is to single vineyards and more and more wineries leaving the DOC system.

Didn't taste anything I didn't already know, bar a bizarre white Grenache champagne-method reserva (2014) from Vina Pomal. It was excellent and well priced. Blind I would never have guessed its grape or origin
