This review is from: Wine Report 2008 (Hardcover)
Having just returned from a family visit in Switzerland I am delighted to be able to report back that the "Wine Report 2008" is of paramount importance when searching for Swiss wine in Switzerland. For the length of time that I was over there it wouldn't have been practical to keep a checklist of wines drunk. The guide was in this respect invaluable as a shortcut to knowing what wines to choose and price level, my cousins being a rather frugal bunch, knowing the price of the tipple up front is a must. Also, they being somewhat less discerning than me as to an appropriate wine to accompany a meal, allowed me to select something to go with the cheese fondue,"Muller-Thurgau 2005" at Sf14 absolutely spot on, "Cabernet Sauvignon / Cornalin 2004" perfect with the fondue Bourguignonne, needless to say I had to pay for that one, my uncle went into raptures (about the wine) that is! The only bad news is that unhappily I left my copy of the "Wine Report" at my cousin's place in Villars, so if anybody out there has a copy unused, and would like to send it to me free, postage and package paid, I will be delighted to take it off their hands? Later this year I am going to make an around the world trip, without this excellent wine report for a quick reference, I might be all at sea!!!

Well, Mr. Wine Buff. Something to go with the cheese fondue? The Lord preserve me from cheese fondue, for I have had it up to here. I reckon the appropriate comment as to what to drink with it is as per the old country fellow who is asked directions. "You wants go where? You doesn't wanna be startin' from 'ere, then."
Is it only the 'frugal bunch' who want to know 'the price of the tipple up front'? If you are not in this position yourself, you are in a position to send me a large cheque. Euros would be as acceptable as GBP. Alternatively, monthly settlement of my a/c at The Wine Soc would be a fine thing, gratefully accepted. I must have your confirmation of this before I open an a/c, of course.
And to top it all off, you want someone to send you another copy free, 'p & p paid'!
As for your round the world trip, plain sailing to you and no 'radar assisted collisions', as we now have in this electronic age. But note: 'Canberra' used to carry 9 coffins on its R.T.W. trip. On 'Oriana' for the 3 weeks to the W.I. [working, I have to say] they needed 2. Steady with the Muller-Thurgau, whatever its vintage.
