Once a month, members of the European Parliament pack up their offices and move to Strasbourg for the week. The Conservative Party manifesto of 2009 pledged to end this ‘absurdly wasteful practice’. But it has formed no part of the Prime Minister’s renegotiation.

The Daily Telegraph has revealed that the European Commission has spent €12.6 million of taxpayers’ money on a fleet of six private jets to ferry around senior politicians. This includes a staggering £4.3 million tofly Jean-Claude Juncker and his officials between Brussels and Strasbourg. This is despite the fact that this journey is only 220 miles, with daily commercial flights between the two cities.

This sort of waste is endemic within the European Union. Lets all vote  to leave so we can spend our money on our own priorities, rather than paying for five-star travel for unelected eurocrats.

The Most Glamorous Person in a Pinny competition was held at Manoir de Gourin last night in a blaze of pageantry. There was singing and merrymaking throughout the evening. Apart from dressing up in a pinny, contestants were asked to perform various tasks becoming of a pinny wearer such as waiting at the table, clearing dishes and serving customers etc.   The winner in the middle of the pic was Hakan wearing a nifty orange number. Well done.

The pitch arrives for the summer world cup of table football in the Loire, France

The summer Loire world table football competition may be months away but the pitch has arrived at St Macaire du Bois as the pic shows. This should give enough time for the surface to be in peak condition ready for the first game. Any team wishing to enter please let me know. Apart from the enormous trophy as champions we also do the formula one thing and provide the best bubbly in the world from the loire of course ‘Cremant de Loire’ to spray over everyone.

Rum from Brazil, Panama and Martinique

Grainger’s wine blog is gfwineblog.co.uk

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

A slight deviation from my crusade to find some decent organic wines from along the Loire valley. Rum. You may have seen my recent blog on rum from the island of Martinique, a french overseas territory in the Caribbean. Rum is made on the island from sugar cane rather than the normal molasses. Its made under the french quality system of AOC called Rhum Agricole. I sampled some 10 year old together with some rums made in Panama and Brazil.

Eric Louis Celliers de la Pauline

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

A jaunt around the Salon des Vins de Loire in Angers allows me an easy cruise along the Loire to taste wines from all the regions from Muscadet to Sancerre and everywhere inbetween. One particular need is to find a good value Sancerre. This can be difficult as the appellation has become popular and prices have increased. The unfortunate thing is that quality has become patchy with negotiants moving in. Anyway I think I’ve found a goodun. Celliers de la Pauline. They also produce Quincy, Menetou Salon, and Pouilly Fumé.  I’ll get hold of some samples to try out on our friends. Keep a eye on our blog.

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

An interesting day spent tasting the wines of the Loire at the Salon des Vins de Loire in Angers. A more relaxed approach this year after the hectic schedule last time out. The aim this year to concentrate on the organic (bio) selection at the fair. This year the organisers arranged a separate part called La Levée de la Loire. You know the french when it comes to putting a name to an organisation make it as unrelated as possible. What’s wrong with Bio Loire or Loire Bio or Vin Bio Loire or some such. Anyway back to the fair. I tasted all the wines on the open tasting table before joining the exhibitors to talk about their wines. The best of the bunch was a Muscadet Serve et Maine and a Savennieres. I will follow these two up and arrange some samples and a visit to the domaines.

Drink bubbly for your health

More good news on the benefits of drinking wine, people. Its not good to have dry periods according to author Julia Stephenson. Her french doctor recommended a glass or two of bubbly a day to help cure her low blood pressure. Wine is full of those lovely polyphenols that aid the flow of blood through the body. Alcohol also aids memory and could starve off Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. Hey great news break out the bubbly folks. We’ve some great french Cremant from the Loire in France.
