Guerilla Wine Tasting: A Guest Post from Gorilla

I’m so tired of wine being exclusive. I’m so bored of the London scene. Why can’t us Gorillas have some of the action?

I love wine and I think I understand it, so I sent a message out to fellow wine lovers.

“Join me by the river to explore and enjoy good wine.”

We had fun. We had wine. You saw what all happened…

Thanks to Casa Leal, Quinta de Lagoalva and Nicole Ruduss for all their help. And  lots of hugs and kisses for The Winesleuth and Eatlikeagirl for supporting me in my vinous quest.

  1. Great idea for a Friday night out, drinking good wine with a friendly Gorilla, love it!

  2. Ha ha ha! Denise! I nearly spat my tea out at the way you had to lift your mask every time to get the wine down.

    • Hee hee hee! Neither I nor Gorilla believe in dribbling wine – unless it’s the end of a long drinking session! 😉 Thanks for stopping by and Gorilla hopes you can make the next one!

  3. Looks as though you had a blast! Sorry I wasn’t there. (But my Italian evening in Sussex went v well. Got a few songs in…)

    • Maybe next time we can get you to do a duet with Gorilla – she loves to sing, although she can be off-key at times 🙂

  4. Only in London do people react like, sure why not, a gorilla drinking wine, what else is new? Does she also drink Chaminé?

    • Well, we did have some naysayers but in general people loved the whole idea of “good wine being good fun”. And seeing as Gorilla really likes Portuguese wine, I’m sure she’ll be swilling Chamine real soon!
