• There was an old lady who swallowed a fly …

    I don’t know why, she swallowed a fly. Maybe she’ll die. Sounds a little harsh for swallowing just one fly.  Don’t you think?  If only wine VEIL had been around this whole nursery rhyme tragedy would have been averted.  We love stories about bugs in wine and this month was no exception.  Come children, it’s time for wine VEIL story hour!

    This month’s gem comes to us from a couple at the Castle Rock Wine Fest:

    They had recently gotten married.  The wedding took place in a beautiful outdoor setting. Near the end of the ceremony, the officiant performed a blessing of a glass of wine from which the bride and groom would drink. The couple looked into the glass and it was loaded with bugs!  They looked at each other and started laughing.  The groom “took it for the team” and took the first sip bugs and all…talk about wedding crashers!

    Got a good, gross or awesome story about a bug in your drink?  Send them to us on facebook or via our contact page.  In the meantime avoid the creepy crawlies with a wine VEIL over your favorite festive beverage!
