There appears to be a day to celebrate all kinds of weird and wonderful things. January 13th was rubber ducky day. Thousands of the little yellow bath friends floated down international waters brightening up a dull January. International Pillow fight day invaded Trafalgar Square at the start of the month. Feathers flew making Nelson look like he was standing watch in the midst of a snowstorm. Yesterday was “World Malbec Day.”

Modern winemaking techniques mean that it’s not difficult to make highly fruitful and drinkable wines for less money than in the past (despite the effects of multiple duty increases and increased transport costs!) and undrinkable wines are a thing of the past – at their worst they are simply boring.

I feel like I’m being watched. I look over my right shoulder and there, eyeing up my vino, is head of a moose. The giant mammal is part of the charm of the Oxford Blue and it will have to put up with a lot of people scratching its nose as the autumn changes to this local pub come in full swing. Thursdays Chris Murray and his talented Chef Mark Bradbury are launching a steak night, Tuesdays they will start a live performance and a new seasonal menu are all part of the exciting plans, but what I really wanted to find out about was the wine. The thing about Chris is he is passionate about his wine and local beers. Before we even sat down he was showing me the Oxfordshire Ales and chatting excitedly about his new finds.
