1966.. a very good year!


This wine is too good for toast-drinking my dear. You don't want to mix emotion up with a wine like that. You lose the taste... Ernest Hemingway

There has to be a story here!  He looks as if he has the weight of the world on his shoulders as he clutches a bottle of Penfolds 1966 a rare and tasty drop, perhaps that's the story, he's just spent his last $1000 on a bottle of wine :) Hope you had or are still having a good weekend, happy Monday, take care...p.s. it has been suggested in comments that this could be one of Perth's 'infamous' politicians :) and Angie passed on a link here.. LOL!

  1. Doesn't look much like Hemingway. If interested in him, read a fictional novel, Mrs Hemingway.

  5. If I'd just spent $1000 for a bottle of wine, I'd look just like him. I'd be asking myself, "How could you do anything that stupid?"

  8. Love the mural. If I spent $1000.00 for a bottle of wine, I'd be dealing with a headache too.

  9. A very cool post, Grace. I wouldn't know one wine from another and I like most all of 'em whether they're 1966 or 2006 or 2014! :) That 2nd shot is perfect!

  10. Yes, I think he is that minister (What's his name?) who recently crashed his car after too many drinks and ended up discraced...Buswell? Looks a bit like him. :-)

  11. Hmmm. I was 16 that year and at the depths of adolescent misery. Many years later I scored a few bottles of Grange Hermitage at an affordable price. It was heaven.

  17. A great find Grace. I like the mix of the real and the unreal with the lady walking towards the sad Penfolds 1966 drinker. PS. Love the Hemmingway quote too.
