Re: Plum wine - fruity, medium-sweet dessert

quick note - just checked their website and it doesn't list the small clear wine bottles - best give them a ring as they definately do have them and i thought they were cheap at around 70p each.....

Re: flavoured vinegar

That is what i thought the recipe should be but it definately says white wine - maybe the reader is to assume that they mean white wine vinegar!
