"To Please the Taste Buds of the Southern Ladies"

The Waldensian Heritage Wines Winery in Valdese, North Carolina, is well worth checking out. The wine is tasty and quite reasonably priced (as in $8/bottle at the time of this posting). The folks who run it seem to be very much enjoying their work, their wine and the history of the Waldensians. Their polyglot phrasing at times reminds me in its peculiarities of Amos Tutuola's "Complete Gentleman." For example: "Villar Rouge Sweet . . . with extra sugar to please the taste buds of the Southern Ladies and the Southern Gentlemen." And: "Millennium Deux . . . Sipping it reminds one of memories gone by and memories to come." How cool is that? Believe me, it's even cooler after a little on-site wine tasting . . . 

Today's Rune: Wholeness.

I've always wanted to like wines more than I do. I can only drink the sweet ones.

I've always wanted to go to a wine tasting. But everytime I hear about one it's always too late.
