Grapes of Peace

Kirkham's CheeseA TASTING OF the wines of Israel and Lebanon will be held at Vinopolis, 16th August, 1pm to 9pm. A curious event to have in the epicentre of conflict; more usually these things are held afterwards - to soothe the metaphorical hangover. Nonetheless this event demonstrates more progress than the UN.

This photo was sent to me by my brother in law travelling by train this afternoon. He was needless to say taken aback by the scope of BR's wine list.

Update - this event has been cancelled.
