Fairview Shiraz 2011 – from some actor’s collection

When I was in Warsaw not so long ago, I decided to visit a shop owned by quite famous man, who has sacrificed acting in order to pursue his passion for wine.

Something to begin with

Have you ever stood in a wine shop in front of a shelf trying to figure out which wine to choose? Even if this is a store that has issued their flyer, usually it is not very helpful.
