They are listed below for your mutual amusement.

You think our wine copy is worthy of this blog? A good job we're not, unlike some competitors, prone to hyperbole :)

Yes, that's exactly why we feature your copy!

Writing about grapes is a self-parody minefield (or mine-orchard).

But, The Wine Society treads lightly, never adding an unnecessary flourish. The copy is fun *and* sensible. In summary, a Shiraz, not a spritzer.
