Bargain of the Day: Pagan wine

by Feòrag

Malta: Okay, so this product is not deliberately marketed at neopagans, but I bet they buy it:

Meridiana Wine Estate has launched its third white wine called Astarte, inspired by the Phoenician goddess of fertility worshipped in Malta during the Punic period. Astarte is based on the Vermentino grape, a Mediterranean wine grape variety which is ideal for Malta's climatic conditions.

New wine toasts fertility goddessTimes of Malta, 7th August 2008. See also Bargain of the Day: L'Chaim!, The Prattle, 18th October 2004.

Well, since I don't care much about goddesses and even less about fertility and I cannot ask the Phoenicians, because they have sort of vanished, I'll ask you the important question. Is this wine any good?

White grapes...hmm, should be like any other white wine then--not particularly strong or sweet.

If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
