ashton and mila drank sherry. and the daily mail drives me crazy.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis spent this past weekend in Jerez, the Spanish town where sherry is made.

The Daily Mail said he’s “clutching a bottle of what looked like red wine” – good lord, please call grapefriend before printing these things. They’re in Jerez, and the bottle clearly says “Cream” on it which means it’s sherry. There’s no Cream wine. Cream sherry is sweet and made by blending different wines, usually Amontillado or Oloroso mixed with Pedro Ximenez.

Also, they’re at Tabanco El Pasaje, which is a sherry and tapas bar in Jerez. Way to report, Daily Mail.

Then in this pic, the Daily Mail said he was drinking rosé.

It’s way too brown to be rosé. Looks like sherry again (they’re in Jerez, what else are you going to drink!), a nutty Amontillado or Manzanilla. Hers could just be white wine, like a Godello or something, but it’s probably sherry too – a fino, which is that pale gold color. (See this Downton-inspired sherry primer for a rundown of the styles.)

BTW, in case you’ve ever wondered why it’s called cream sherry: supposedly, in the late 1800s, a woman was at a sherry tasting. After trying dry sherry, which was nicknamed “Bristol’s Milk” (Bristol is a British port where Sherry was often shipped), she tried the sweeter one and said, “If that is milk, then this is cream.”

Remember Harvey’s Bristol Cream? It’s downright upright, yo. Mila should totally do a modern version of that commercial.

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
