nor do I know anything about wine. The lady Diane and meself like a glass of wine with dinner but are totally illiterate about wine so when we go shopping we just look for something interesting (mostly reds but I also like the portugese vinho verde white wine) under 10$. So anyway we picked up a bottle of this wine and liked it so much we went back and bought a case. It's a cabernet sauvignon called Casillero del Diable from a vitner in Chile named Concha y Toro. Ok that's the extent of my wine knowledge. Oh, and we buy Mumm's champagne because we recognise the label and it's always been pretty good. I quit drinking Thunderbird years ago.

Does that still have little plastic bulls hanging from it?

I was a baby wine conoisseur -- my dad knew his wines and I did from very early, but E.G. can't drink wine, so I rarely do, and it's all faded.

I prefer a Montrachet 1978 from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. I have about seven bottles.

Is that a vinegar?

I think it's an eau de toilette.

It's a maxim in auction circles that it only takes two bidders to make a market. No better illustration of the adage came with a heated telephone battle on Dec. 1 between two highly-determined anonymous collectors at Aulden Cellars-Sotheby's New York auction over seven precious bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet 1978. The winning bid ultimately soared to an incredible $167,500 (inclusive of the buyer's premium) against an estimate of $7,000-$10,000.

(thank goodness)

I suppose I could google sirloin tip - I need to anyway, since Dys and I have been discussing matters of culotte cut, skirt steak, and tri-tip and sirloin tip.. I suspect they are different names for the same cut. Will post back if I get anywhere re this on google.
