JennieG FITNESS & Declutter 2022 - Pandemic redux (956* d) RE: FITNESS & Declutter 2022 - Pandemic redux 14 Sep 22

Back in late 2012 we were visiting friends in North Bay, Ontario, when Gilles took it into his head that we should try some wine from Quebec - it's only an hour drive. Off we went on a drizzly chilly day (cool misty weather makes for beautifuly atmospheric photos) to a town called Temiscamingue where we found what in Oz is called a bottle shop, a generic term for an outlet which sells any sort of alcohol.

After a conversation in French with Madame - I even said bonjour Madame in my best Ozzie French, and Madame seemed most impressed - we found some Quebec wine which, when we tried it that evening, none of us liked very was very sweet, more like mead. However we noticed that 80% or so of their stock was from Oz! Wolf Blass, Yellow Tail, Jacob's Creek, which we can buy in any bottle shop here; we would have expected wine in Quebec to be either local, or imported from France.

Probably even had some Chateau Cardboard tucked away too.
