A nice drop of red, by Michael Noyce

On our first night in Uzbekistan, at our Farg'ona City hotel, we were celebrating our six hour border crossing ordeal with a bottle or two of nice Italian red wine. Or was it? The label said Classico and then Vini Italia, so it must be Italian. But then we saw lots of Russian writing on the front and back labels. So, we asked our Uzbek guide and he replied "No, this is our wine. It's a joint venture with an Italian company".

The second bottle was just as nice.
