Milk and wine

We are all conditioned to love milkmen in Britain. The following notices brought a smile to my face, as examples of how members of the Wine Society co-operative get to know and love the people who deliver their wine.

Both were examples given to me by Sarah Evans, who is the very accomplished Chair of the Wine Society.

“If out, leave by outhouse, NOT with neighbours – dog friendly, cat scared, ducks for sale.”

“Leave as usual by the front door and write on the box ‘Caution: swine fever'”

PS I’d be interested in one day telling the story of co-operatives in wine. Does anyone know of any sympathetic wine writers?
