Some of you have clearly only ever drunk Blue Nun. A proper German wine is a thing of beauty.

Certainly not German wine, watered down with petrol it normally tastes like

Greek wine tastes like it has been boosted by nail polish remover

Uruguayan wine has,

Portugese wine has had it's grapes chewed and spat out by 90 year old toothless women then fermented in their fathers old socks.

Canadian wine is so bad the Americans don't drink it!

Edit> Canadian wine is so bad they don't export it deliberately

There is more to Greek wine than Retsina, thankfully.

Ice wine sounds like they have to freeze it cold enough that you can't taste it.

It's made from grapes that are left on the vine until winter. They dehydrate until they are like raisins then when they freeze the pickers go out before dawn and hand pick them. 

The wine is very sweet but because the grapes have started to rot they have a level of acidity that stops it being just sugar.

Its lovely with a pudding.
