Ask women what their favourite drink is and most of them will not think twice before proclaiming wine to be their all-time favourite choice. Just as bread and jam, milk and biscuits, and Romeo and Juliet go hand – in – hand, the same is the case with women and wine I feel. For that matter, a lady might not even feel the need of a man to cheer her up or to sweep her off her feet when the same can be accomplished by curling up on the sofa in pyjamas with a big glass of Chardy or Riesling by her side. She becomes totally care – free and worry – less, and nothing can dampen her wild and elated spirit after a couple of glasses of her favourite wine.
