"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    I didn't expect that I know so little about wine, beer and spirits!

    Your glass is definitely half empty, but while you've got a problem with your trivia, at least you don't have one with your drinking.

    Evidence that you're not a boozer @april.

    Okay, I got this shameful score... :/

    Isn't it obvious that I have no ideas on different wine brands? Or it's just like I haven't tried drinking wines? Well, this is the right reason to try it out. ;)
