Rekindling an old Tradition.
My son Kimbo is a generous soul, and prioritises his sons futures.
He recently invested in some wine for them. He bought a case for each of them from their birth year vintage, and has laid them down for their twenty-first birthdays.
The wines were very carefully chosen by a renowned wine expert, and are expected to be perfect for when the time comes to pull their corks.
Both Harvey J and Ollie have each signed one bottle from each case, and are very proud of their burgeoning wine cellars.
Harvey J has a case of Chateau Grandis (Haut-Médoc) 2006, and Ollie has a case of Chateau Grand Village (Bordeaux Superieur) 2007.
The buying of fine wines for one's children used to be a more regular practice, but I haven't heard of people doing it much recently. It's a tradition that needs re-establishing.
