Wine and Champagne ... French, Italian, Chilean & Japanese too!

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, at E's home ...

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin (with Ice Jacket) - Beautifully stocked up in a wine fridge, slurp!

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon in mini-bottles ... produce of Chile

Jolly Shandy ... Malaysia Boleh!

Prosecco Del Veneto - Italian 'champagne'!

Plum Wine from Japan (Choya-esque!) ... Umeshu is a liqueur made with plums. It has been consumed over 1,000 years in Japan. Umeshu is made by soaking unripe ume plums in shochu (alcohol content of about 35%) and sugar. Ume plums contain potassium and calcium, so umeshu is said to be good for health. Green ume plums are mainly harvested in May/June in Japan.

AND, an interesting premium I noticed ... dice game that's very popular but in a fancy cylindrical jar, by Hennessy VSOP.
