How it all Started - Part 4.1

How it all Started - Part 4.1

During my time at Heathrow Airport I was asked to spend sometime away in Edinburgh supporting the new contract at Edinburgh Airport. Staying in the Mount Royal Hotel on Princes Street meant that I could wander around the city, which was rich for the wine lover at this time. Justrini & Brooks on George Street, Valvona & Corolla on the way to Leith for example. The most fantastic find for me was J.E.Hogg. It looked like a terraced house from the outside, but the most fantastic selection of wine. I had a lovely walk at least once a week taking in all three shops and purchasing a special bottle. As the company was paying all my expenses by the time I boarded my BA flight to Heathrow my hand luggage was a holdall with of 12 bottles of 1st growth claret. Latour, Lafite, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux and Haut Brion mostly from 1983 and 1985 vintages!
