Lunch today with colleagues at The Contented Vine in Pimlico. What a great name for a slightly rambling wine bar cum restaurant on three or even four levels. Well executed, good value food and a well constructed wine list – Champagne, French classics, currently a whole page on Australia. We drank a very good Benevento Falanghina from southern Italy – good lemony fruit, excellent body, a very good food wine.
Ps this is a trial post direct from my Iphone – slow going but useful. The photo is of the ‘rhubarb crumble and custard’ garden at the Chelsea Flower Show … only conceivable in England! And the glass is of course rhubarb country wine – pale red, powerful rhubarb nose, no doubt very sharp. It’s a strange world out there.
