What is better on a hot summer eve than a 47 lb. Rooster?  Cool Salade Nicoise, tiny tomatoes with fresh basil from the pot on the porch, a still-warm baguette from Top Shelf and this fun, cheap and delicious Pinot Grigio?  Here's what the label says:

At the turn of the century HRM (His Royal Majesty) Rex Goliath was a treasured circus attraction.  Weighing in at 47 lbs., Rex was billed as "the World's Largest Rooster."  Our wines are a tribute to  Rex's larger-than-life personality with big fruit forward flavors sure to please.  Bright, juicy and floral --say howdy to our California version of this Italian classic--cultured, but racy and very romantic.  ~  HRM Rex Goliath Winery, Madera, California.

O no, and I'm dining alone tonight!
