Almost a traitor .... :wink:

The Inycon wines are produced in Sicily by the Settesoli Co-operative, as a joint venture with UK importer Enotria, and are named after the ancient Greek name for the town of Menfi, Inycon, which is also the name of the local wine festival. This is a formidable co-operative, with over 2300 members who own over 6000 hectares of vineyards. Unsurprisingly, with such a huge membership, the co-operative has access to a wide range of varieties, including traditional local grapes such as Grecanico ...

Somebody asked me if I was a bitter man - no, just mildly peeved, I replied.

I was once asked if I would like a cup of "kauwfi" in Massachusetts somewhere. Never been to Long Island.

They've got a great accent in and around Boston though, I can't get enough of those movies in which it is depicted...'Mystic River', 'The Departed', 'Thirteen Days' (badly in the Kennedy brothers).

Perhaps the person who asked was a Long Islander living in Massachusetts. Bostonians would pronounce it "cahfee. We're lazy elocutionsists: "chowdah" instead of "chowder," "theya" instead of "there;" "foah" instead of "four." If you like the accent be sure to see The Fighter starring Micky Rourke, the actual fighter from Lowell, Massachusetts.
