English wine debate heats up


Ever taste an English wine? I haven’t, so I can be neutral in this tiff. As I reported here the other day, the British press says Prince Charles, keen to be green, has been running his beloved Aston Martin on a gasohol made in part from “surplus wine.”

Well. This has the English wine industry in a snit -- protesting that English wine is as good as any other country’s wine, and that there is certainly not a “surplus” of it.

Maybe they should get used to it. I’ve read elsewhere that, because of global warming, English wine is getting better, and there could be more than 200 English wineries by the year 2025.

Question: Does anybody know where a bloke can buy a bottle of English wine in South Florida?
