    Nowadays we have gadgets for all sorts. Scientists have worked out how to do this, how to do that. But centuries ago, knowledge was mysterious. It's little wonder then, they used to think this wine was made by magic.

    Years back, crushing grapes was not a subtle art. Even the diminutive individuals who trod the fruit still managed to smash pips and taint the juice with a tannic edge*. Until Granbazan the Wizard. He designed a system of tanks through which the free run juice descended, filling the air with scents of green apples and lemon; resulting in a wine so complex and smooth no-one could believe it. All the wizard had done, of course, was let gravity do its job. But they didn't now that then, did they?

    *Which is where we get Pipsqueak from. Short, annoying people.

    Given finding them usually involves whacking a rock with a hammer, it's a miracle any fossils remain intact. Especially delicate ones, like the echinoderms and crinoids. Then they have to be carefully cleaned, too.

    With this in mind, a group of paleontologists based near Devon's Jurassic coast developed a preparation that would help. It took years, but finally they had it. A liquid with just enough acidity to break down excess rock, and a playful little fizz to lift the particles, leaving the specimen perfectly exposed. Needless to say, a celebration ensued. Actually, with such aplomb things got a little fuzzy. It was only after the toast was offered and glasses drained they realised they'd drunk the special mixture. Happily, being grape-based, no ill effects were suffered. On the contrary, they use it less and less for cleaning fossils now...

    Nothing could be more exhilarating than galloping along astride his beloved horse 'Miriade'. Or so Garcia thought. Until one day, cantering through the hillside scrub, a most extraordinary perfume enveloped him. Honeysuckle, blossom, exotic fruits... Only a princess could smell so alluring.

    In a trance, he followed the scent to a thicket of thorns and forced his way through. There, beyond the spiky wall, was a vineyard, dripping with grapes and lavish with scent. And then he heard a voice. A beautiful maiden, trapped since childhood. Rescued from the thorns by the astonishing fragrance. This wine celebrates their marriage, but beware. It's unlikely anyone will rescue you from its spell.

    You would think growing up with no one to talk to would be lonely. But the lost princess knew no different. She'd been taken away so young she had no sense of the world beyond the thorns the witch had trapped her within. She had the birds, the creatures all to bring friendship as she grew.

    Perhaps it was because she was unspoilt that the grapes she tended grew so well. A pip, brought her by a little bird, was all she had to start. But she spent years joyfully tending the growing vines, the fragrance of which - of flower blossom, fruit baskets and honey wax – was spellbinding. Little wonder, really, that scent drew a man through the thicket to rescue her. You won't have to worry about thorns though. Just have a corkscrew to hand.

    Cher wins the hearts of people everywhere and manages to make it look effortless whilst doing it. Iconic, stylish...

    No, we’re not talking about THE Cher. Although, technically we are. Cher, a department in Centre-Val de Loire, is named after ‘Le Cher’, a river that runs off the River Loire. And it happens to be the home of Vignoble Dinocheau, the makers of this delicate sparkling white wine. With fine bubbles running throughout and a fresh and fruity palate, you'll find yourself in A Different Kind of Love with this cuvee.
