I don't know how we got on to Purdeys - but they are indescribably beautiful works of art. If I was a rich man, I wouldn't buy a vulgar Rolls Royce, I'd buy a matched pair of 12 bore Purdeys. Even if I couldn't afford to buy any shooting, I could just look at them, and marvel at the near hubristic perfection.

Looking for northerly wines? What about Stornoway, that`s quite far north. Take a look at the Stornoway Gazette there is a report on a wine investment opportunity (I would have put in the link but it was incredibly slow in loading this morning). A crofter reckons he can grow enough wine to produce a good quality medium dry Rose for around £20/bottle.

This site also give tips on how to look after your grape production on the croft.

Making it perhaps the most expensive Rose in the world. That makes sense :roll:
