An oenophile's dilemma

We had a problem today with our evening meal. Which wine should we choose? We needed something to complement egg, chips and beans without compromising the elegance of the wine - not an easy decision as I’m sure you’ll agree. 

In the end, we chose to carry on with the wine we were already drinking, an Orvieto from Sainsbury’s.

Although the wine didn't actually go with egg chips and beans, it did have two things going for it. Firstly it took the edge off a dull, wet afternoon. Secondly it was what we wine buffs call “cheap”.

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked! The only drink that will go with egg, beans 'n' chips is a *mug* of tea, none of yer fancy cups, mind, dark brarn and at least two sugars!

David - or a mug of tea and a couple of rounds of bread and butter. But sugar in tea??
