Rising from the grave, my once weekly mumbo-jumbo newsletter has returned. Mostly about wine, or wine related stuff, I still allow myself to here express my thoughts in a more relaxed (some would probably say unconsidered) way. Comments are more than welcome, wanted actually!

Sjukdom har återigen hälsat på och av någon anledning är det tjejtrojkan som råkat illa ut; naturligtvis med stortjejen i ohotad ledartröja.
