Local brews enjoyed while in Leeds

A porter / stout, wheat beer, mild and a best bitter. 

The last of the wines from a past life........ 

There are interesting things afoot in Italy and I do enjoy trying new wines made from old indigenous grape varieties.

That said, this wine was a revelation: the 2000 Gresy. An oaked Chardonnay from the Langhe which proved to be a stunning wine in all respects and the perfect accompaniment to baked fish Italian style.

My thanks to V & A for inviting us to share their holiday find.
