Slightly Corked Wine Columns

by Delbert Horrocks

Slightly Corked started out as a wine column but evolved from there.

Sometimes I will write about wine and food related topics but at other times I will not.

The motto of the column is: Some of this might actually be true. Yep, this is a work of tongue and cheek. Whimsical exaggeration has been slathered on like an overdose of wasabi mayonnaise.

Readily apparent is that I wander back and forth between fact and fiction at lightening speed, sometimes tripping over myself in the process
