Wine, wine everywhere and not a drop to drink

As you may know, wine writer Max Allen is off the grog this month.

He is abstaining to raise money for FebFast (http://www.febfast.com.au) and also because he thought it would be an interesting challenge to see if he could go wine-free for an extended period of time.

"A month without drinking feels like an eternity to a professional booze hack, let me tell you," he said.

"I’m half way through, and it hasn’t been easy – although, yes, the occasional day off the wagon here and there (thanks to the FebFast Time Out scheme) has helped.

"What I need now to make it to the 28th without weakening is some good old fashioned moral support – in the form of sponsorship.

"Please visit the link below and help take my mind off spicy Shiraz, silky Pinot and zesty Riesling by donating."
