Wine by Demijohn



I cannot do a wordless without saying something... I guess I owe you, guys a story on my previous entry. We are living in the world's wine region which was shared alike some countries in Europe despite the differences in drinking cultures. A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine. Wine and food are like a man and a woman.

The cheapest way to buy a good wine is by demijohn. Demijohn is a large bottle having a short and narrow neck... Just some photos to share.

A typical demijohn contains about 30 to 35 liters of wine.

The welcoming wine lady.

  1. I don't think I will ever get myself to drink alcohol (no specific reason, I just don't like it). But the post, and the pictures, were very interesting!

    My WW post is called "At the movies". It will be up in about 2 hours.

    Happy WW!

  3. I think the world definitely needs more welcoming wine ladies (or men, either way). I love the way the hoses are set up like gas pumps, too.

    Very interesting post.

  15. How marvellous! I like that idea. Do you then get a pipe from the car into your house? That would be cool

  19. I would love a wine filling station in my neighborhood.

  20. Do you bottle the wine afterwards? because 30 liters of wine is a lot of wine, lol! It couldn't be done here in Spain because of the warm weather, you'd have to bottle it and make sure it is tightly closed or you'd have many liters of vinager for your salad!
    Happy ww, interesting pics :)

  21. That´s very cool! I could go for a wine station right about now . . . oh, wait, it´s not even 10 am here. :S
