I was in some debate as to whether to share this on here or not, but it made me laugh, made the husband laugh, made the waiter laugh, and so I figured what the hell, it may make you laugh too.
The husband and I went to this fancy seven-course dinner on New Year's Eve at this very nice restaurant in Ogden.
On top of the seven courses, one could (and of course I did) also have a wine pairing.
And this was the menu.
It may take you a bit to see it. I'm not going to draw a red circle around it or nothing. But when the husband pointed it out to me, I laughed and darn near choked on wine #3.
Husband says that whoever created the winery name must have an ex named Liana.
The waiter serving us laughed and told us an older couple had felt it their duty to point out the "misprint", only it wasn't a misprint at all.
But in all honesty, the wine in question was delicious.
Enjoy the chuckle or the groan or the eye roll that results from this and may you all have a great 2015.
This is funny and I am glad it was a good wine. lol Happy 2015 to you and yours as well.ReplyDelete

I had to find out the story behind the name. Wikipedia says: "Botryotinia fuckeliana is a plant pathogen, and the causal agent of gray mold disease. The specific epithet was named by mycologist Heinrich Anton de Bary in honor of another mycologist, Karl Wilhelm Gottlieb Leopold Fuckel. This species is better known as its anamorph, Botrytis cinerea." Unfortunate turn of events.ReplyDelete
Wow! Imagine being named Fuckel. LOL My goodness. Thanks for sharing that.Delete
