A neighbour came round and gave me this photo. It was taken at Christmas 2007. I had been asked by the town to DJ for 3 hours..I agreed with the stipulation...no Christmas songs..just Soul & Gospel. It was the coldest night of the year I think. I wrapped up well...note the white gloves..and pleased some of the people part of the time.....dedicated 'Silent Night' lovers only got a gospel version. Why post this on a wine blog? Well...sympathetic fans..on seeing me freeze my **** off....kept offering me Glühwein. Glühwein is prepared from red wine, heated....and spiced with cinnamon sticks, cloves and sugar. It is the cheapest red you can get..is my guess...and probably only drinkable when hot. As a dedicated wine lover..I opted to have my **** freeze over before taking even one sip of the dreaded stuff!
See..I can post without mentioning Spätburgunder....oh damm...done it again. Wonder how it tastes slightly warmed?
