"Cher Mme. Sommelier,
I recently experienced the most embarrassing experience of my life. My sweetheart and I were preparing to enjoy an intimate evening together. I had brought the wine, of course - something special, and as ruby red as my lover's lips. The table was laid with antique, snow white damask - the bottle was uncorked and as I finished pouring a glass, two large drips wept from the lip of the bottle, and my lover's cheeks turned as scarlet as those stains upon the cloth. Instead of toasting one another with my fine vintage, we daubed the offending drips together, with soda water. What can I do in the future, to prevent such a tragic ending to a fine evening?"
Gentle Vintner, Your experience with untimely leakage is sadly, all too common. Whether it is a dribble of sherry down the front of Grand'mere's frock, or tears of blood red wine on your lover's antique coverlet, those premature droplets can cause one and all to shrivel in humiliation. Of course, the festive occasion is then darkened by daubing, and soaking, instead of rejoicing and toasting.
But fortunatement, the solution is so simple as to be very nearly silly. It's a wonderful new produit developed by my special friends at THE HOME VINTNER. They've chosen to call it the "Drip Lip", presumably because that's exactly what this petite miracle is, and that is, it's a Lip to catch the Drip. You see? Simple! But I sense your puzzlement. "How can this be?" you ask yourself. "Does this defy the very laws of nature?" Mais oui! This clever "Drip Lip" is a beautifully thin and elegant disk that one could carry discreetly in a pocket, like any other small disk that one carries discreetly. And, in the true nature of the disk, it's terribly useful. Simply roll it on your fingers into a cigar like shape, and insert it gently into the mouth of the bottle. Then, when you pour your vin, the "Lip" will catch the "Drip" and you, cher amie, will go on to enjoy the full fruits of the evening!
Until next time!
