One of my quests whilst I am in England is to visit the towns and villages of my ancestors and seek out any remaining distant relatives. Since I tend to call in at at least one pub in every place that I visit, I guess you could call it my ancestral home pub crawl. First stop on the tour: Beccles, Suffolk.
When you are alone on an island, any beer is a good beer! This bottle was courtesy of Ian, who brought it out to me a couple of weeks ago as a birthday gift. Now that I have drank it, I believe that I am ready to leave this island and head back to the land of loved ones and beer. Farewell Race Rocks!
It’s time for another boxed wine review… and a few choice photos from the the Race Rocks lighthouse!
Despite being an ardent traditionalist, I actually rather like the unorthodox looking Six Grapes logo on the bottle. It says on the back of the bottle that the ‘Grape’ symbol classifies their port wines on a scale of one to six, “six denoting the lots with Vintage Port potential.” Like many other ports, it also claims to pair well with chocolate and blue cheese! That I don’t doubt, since most ports share many things in common.
