I was almost driven to drink ( I wish ) after having had a couple of glasses of Barossa Valley Shiraz from a company called Pepperjack, it really hit every right note for me. So imagine my horror when I discovered that it can only be bought in Australia and a couple of US States. Not a chance in England. I even emailed the producers to see if anyone imported it into the UK, they said "no", but that I could order it by the case if I wanted at a cost of, I think, 108 per case. great I thought& started a reply, when I realised, that it was 108 (plus taxes) to ship the wine, plus the cost of the wine itself

Needless to say, if there are any Australian members reading this, then please feel free to hide a couple of cases on the next P&O World Cruise ship passing by

Next: MSC Magnifica August
Booked: MV Emanuel Motor Yacht (Croatia) October
