The Oddbins Take

Rudiger was always disappointed the fresh coastal breeze kicked in just as he settled down for a drink after slogging all day in the vineyards. He thought long and hard about how to beat the problem. He considered planting a bank of conifers to deflect the wind. Of relocating the vehicle shed to block it. But it all seemed a little extreme.


Stoically sipping a red one evening, he had a brainwave. Noticing the wine gave out a daytime warmth, counteracting the evening chill, he set about painting it onto the walls of his stoep. Sure enough, the concentrated, plummy red coddled the heat of the sun and reflected it through the evening. All he needed was a catchy name for the 'paint' and he was certain the technique would catch on. Of course, it's far less effort to drink it, with much the same warming effect.
