Struth! Wine pays the perfect insult


IN his continuing search for the more weird, wacky and wondrous in the world of travel, David Ellis says that a recent trip to Africa found him facing a bottle of wine he discovered was labelled along the lines of comments less-kind colleagues have often made about his enjoyment of a pleasant drop or three.


Travelling through South Africa's famed Winelands region aboard the holiday safari train, Shongololo Express, David who also writes about wine as well as travel, found the bottle at Thierry & Guy Wines in Stellenbosch, and took it back to the train to share that night at dinner with Bulimba (Brisbane) couple Richard and Beverley Payne, who were amongst some 22 other Australians (of a total 28 guests) aboard the Shongololo Express on its 13-day journey from Cape Town to Johannesburg.


The Payne's snapped our scribe with the evidence for our readers to draw their own conclusions.
