Marsala club

My latest Lady column is online. Very modern! It contains my predictions for what we’ll be drinking in 2012. My big tip is fortified wine such as Madeira or Marsala. As I can’t find a stockist for Terre Arse (insert joke here) Marsala in London, I’m thinking of buying a case. It would work out at about £10 a bottle. Any London readers who want in on this please let me know. Even with my love of fortified wine, six bottles is too many for me.

Such is my devotion that, if you say drink Marsala, I’ll drink Marsala. I don’t even know what it is. Oh, a fortified wine, you say? Okay, whatever, sounds good. Put me down for a bottle. Can stick a tenner in your account.

Yes, I want a bottle of marsala! Really enjoyed this column Henry – I’ve been enjoying some wines from Georgia and Moldova recently that have been quite a revelation.

Top column. Put me down for a bottle too. Not that I’ll manage to pay you before April. No I will. I swear.
