Have you ever fancied any of your customers?

"We've got a lot of good-looking women in here but I obviously don't do anything about it

- I'm a married man and I'm too much of a gent.

"

"I'm a ridiculous gigolo, so if it's got a heartbeat and it's female I'll have a go.

There's most of the hairdressers we supply with wine and the barmaid from the pub opposite. If we find a wine she likes we put it on the bottom shelf."

Thomas Jack

Cowbridge, Glamorgan

"One or two, but

only

from afar.

A couple

have fancied me, but I've had to pass on the offers - often people that come in

are the lower end of the market, but you've got to be diplomatic ."

Martin Burns

The Buttery

Stockton-on-Tees, Cleveland

"I've never fancied any of my customers and, as far as I know, no-one has fancied me, although I'm going to be watching people in a different way now."

Saj Hussein

Beer Hut, Dukinfield, Cheshire

"Oh yeah, but I would never do anything about it . I'm

married . I don't think anyone has

fancied me .

We're all in our fifties, no young stuff goes on here."

Sue Challinor

Port Wines

Great Sutton, Merseyside

" I've not fancied anyone, but some people have fancied me. I didn't say a lot when they told me

- the chat up lines weren't any good."

Anne Brooks

Rottingdean Wine

Rottingdean, Brighton

"All the time but I've never done anything about it, I

remain frustrated. It drives you to drink !"

COMMENT

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
