A nice bottle of Lorem Ipsum 2009

Going out to lunch with friends, having a nice bottle of wine in a gastropub. Good way to spend the weekend. Then you decide the wine was really nice and you'd take a quick photograph of the label so you don't forget it.

And then you notice the text on the bottle of Domaine Tissier Sancerre Rouge 2009. Yes, it's Lorem Ipsum filler text!

Interestingly it's the version that's popular in English speaking countries and not in France. I called the vineyard in France who were only able to tell me that the bottle of wine was genuine, that there's very little of the 2009 red left, and that it's only available in the UK to the restaurant trade.

So, if you want to get a bottle as a souvenir or Christmas present for the designer in your family you'll have to persuade a restaurant to part with the bottle.
