economist wine article…


economist articleI finally got around to reading some of this (June 16th-22nd) issue of The Economist. and was drawn (unsurprisingly) to the ‘Charlemagne‘ article devoted to wine. Great quotes abound – how about:

“Wine is different, it has a soul,” says Ferdinand Hoffstetter, who is a big wheel in the grand duchy’s [Luxemburg] ministry of agriculture and viticulture. At dinner, guests may discuss a wine they are drinking. “One does not discuss cauliflowers.”

See – it’s not just boring stuff in the Economist 😉

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
