A humorous wine
Gone are the days when the French were so sure of their supremacy they merely laughed at Australian wines. Today, most of the wine sold here is produced in Australia, and exports are growing. In liquor shops, French wines are confined to a small corner at the back along with other foreign bottles. But the other week there was a promotion on this one. I was startled to read the label: The Arrogant Frog. Well, how's that for self-depreciating humour? These French know how to speak to foreigners. What do you think of it?
