The bottle may have been better than the contents …

Either I have made it up or there was a catchy song about Leo Buring’s Sparkling Rinegolde, a sweet effervescent (fizzy?) white wine beloved of elderly aunties all over Australia in the 1970s.  Rumour has it that Leo’s brother Rudi designed the bottle.  It is a beautiful, heavy club of a thing, with very thick green walls.  Maybe the walls were thick because the contents were under pressure.  It is a great bottle; well done, Rudi.

Would it have occurred to people to try flying if we had not seen the birds doing it already?  Just asking.
