Try a snifter of Rumblesbroken from Defendingsbad. Although it's made out of poorly-selected sour grapes, true connossieurs would clearly recognise it could be a much finer whine if it wasn't so weak to start with.

And with that wonderful commentary, I have completed the bottling of my first ever vintage of Poor Reading Comprehension Ruins Great Parley Threads. The tannins in this whine are a bit harsh and leave your mouth feeling parched and unable to properly form words in response to it. I have hopes that the whine will age well and become smoother, although I may abandon it in my cellar before that happens.

We have just received a large shipment of OMG Doub Prices are over 1000 from the fairly new Green Ocean Vineyards. While not quite as bitter as I Remember When Doubs Were Twice That Much, those who are not experienced tasters will not find it desirable. Those who have sampled a wider variety from the vineyard will find that it is not as bad as some make it out to be.

I was able to grab a tasting the new release from Event Vineyards, Not my Timezone. With only a few cases produced, this highly desirable late harvest Merlot is discussed by many wine connoisseurs anytime a release from Event Vineyards is mentioned. Because it's worldwide shipment causes many to be unable to obtain a bottle, enthusiasts often have to settle for This Event's Rules are Unfair for their Event Vineyards cravings.

Recently, I've noticed a lot of my colleagues have been drinking a lot of I need to defeat zombies. It's not a very healthy wine, it makes the drinkers forget about their shoppes, blockades, pillages, even real life. This makes them thirsty for Does anyone have a whisking potion, the prices are too high for me?, and frankly it's quite annoying.

Following the wide-spread and delicious Poker killed Pillaging and Atlantis killed Poker from the Parley Vineyards, we were able to taste a new wine called Zombies killed Atlantis.

The wine tasted quite parodyish like many wines of this season, yet still surprisingly diffferent from the others.

However, we believe this wine will not be a success, because many experienced wine tasters are on the side of There's too much Parody.

I had a glass. It had an oddly funny flavor, but was a little bland.

Given the sheer volume of raw materials about, I'm expecting a new batch of Wht Doyo Meen Mi Entry Ddnt Qallfy?! from the [Events] vinyard. The sheer volume is impressive, and the practice of sowing wildly should produce an eclectic blend, but alas presentation is lacking, and the overall quality tends to be rather poor.

I tried it, but then someone compared it to a classic bottle of RobertDonald and I couldn't help but fall about laughing.

I just recently come across a the price of wood is killing me wine. I've done minimal research on this as of now and I've only noticed it on Aimuari Island on Hunter. Doesn't appear on adjacent islands like Quetzal where wood is half the price. I suspect the vikings are responsible. I would be curious to see if this is found in other oceans as well.

So many whines to choose from... so little time. I do tend to prefer Skellie Frey's Suck Now over most others whines. Although anything from vineyard producing The Jacked Up Price of Dubs comes in a close second.

ahhh....I too recently have also come across the fine vintage of the price of wood is killing me having discovered several unknown storage caves of it under every stall I own. (if you want some lemme know, i could use the barrels)

This seems to be an appropriate apertif to enjoy, before enjoying the enticing bouqet of that glorious whine why doex eVrytHng c0st s0 much which can only be completed by a tempting cause everyone killed zombies for 2weeks and no one pillaged a rare whine which we seem to be running low on.....

I have recently indulged myself in the whine, Artemis posted in the island openings thread to give me a strop but didn't open any islands. I have given all my friends a sample of this whine, and they are becoming quit tired and immune to the whine's finer points.

The, ZOMG, you have a flag named My Pants! has delighted me today. I am quite happy with this whine, I believe the maker is Penguinmaste/paste/glue.

I keep seeing people with Dubs cost too much. The taste of this whine hasn't changed no matter what grapes are used, and they always seem to be sour.

For that matter, has anyone seen a whine made with sweet grapes?

I believe the proper term for a sweet whine is a *boast*, such as the enviable I only spent 1 segment lazing in Atlantis before I got planked, but I got this Gorgonyx model anyway, neat huh?

A boast is fairly intoxicating, but has some unpleasant side effects, such as turning those around the indulger green with envy, or making them see red. Thus, the wise pirate saves them for use privately, or with small, appreciative groups.

This one is making a comeback, it's very popular with the "highly sophisticate", but by no means limited to them. It's the 2007 Don't Like It? Then get better!. If you savor it, you might be able to taste the malice and elitism flavors that permeate the whine.

The "familiars" whine seems to be making a comeback too, I'm predicting a big 2008 for it. It's most commonly consumed by merchants and pillagers.

Personally the packaging is an issue for me, 2007, I didn't see one bottle that came with a decent case.

Whilst they are not of the whine family in the truest sense, one can not let the current range of beverages go without reviewed.

The initial samplings of iz depressing really were a matter of personal taste, mildly amusing to the taste buds for some, dry and bland to others... But one can only recommended that people steer clear of the cheap imitations which have flooded the market. Having tried a few of the imitation varieties, I can say that without fail they all have a tired and regurgitated scent to them, failing to even come anywhere near that initial flavour that can only be described as fine at best. One can only hope that the powers that be bring in some form of quality control on the rubbish that is being produced of late.

In the interim, I recommend that people stay away from these lesser drinks and toast in the festive season with fine whine or two.
