The bottle arrived, and the first thing our waiter did was to uncork it and present me with the cork - making sure I could read the message on it. Very cute. Ribbit! I get it. But then, he turned the bottle around and showed us a top secret code on the back label. TFWYHF. He made us guess what it meant. Living in Ohio, I immediately tried to fit TBDBITL into it, but it didn't work. (Don't know TBDBITL? Sigh. OK, it stands for "The Best Dam Band In The Land" and it refers to the Ohio State Marching Band. But this is waaay off track here.) We kept trying but.... he finally took pity on us and cracked the code: "Time's Fun When You're Having Flies". Wait for it - it took us a minute, too. And then we just laughed out loud!
Now for the wine itself. It had a bouquet of peach and flowers. It tasted of citrus and apricot and flowers and was light and crisp in my mouth. The finish was of minerals and lime. At no time did I taste or get a whiff of flies (or frogs). And it was absolutely wonderful with my salmon and mushroom risotto. A great wine to sip on its own or to take to the table. One to buy!
Just goes to show that you never know what you're going to get when you walk into a beautiful little restaurant in a picturesque seaside city. A romantic dinner. An amazing meal. Or a lesson on how frogs party. Travel is such fun!
