The Wine Ferret officially opened on September 2nd 2006. We are not your normal liquor outlet. Don't expect to drop in for a bottle of gin or a six-pack of RTDs.

    It is a blend, but a blend of what? The same thing every year? Or does it vary year to year? It must vary, because there is no year on the bottle... these are the thoughts that went through my head as I tasted this wine. I tried to ferret something out of this- astringent and a bit bitter in the mouth. Nothing earth shattering in the nose...... Read More
