Light Glass lover

Reshmi R Dasgupta writes some of wine economics but old socialist and dogmatic wine:

 “glass of red wine and once in a blue moon some really light beer, which my father routinely dismissed as 'horse piss'! But coming back to that prescient minister of yesteryear, after clearly enjoying every sip of champagne, the same gentleman also revealed that he had tried to convince Nehru to plant wine grapes in suitable places around India but "Jawahar simply refused". Imagine, had the minister prevailed, we would have had a more-than-50 year old wine industry in India and could have probably rivalled Australia and South Africa in the 'New World' genre!”
