Gross Negligence

Professor Bainbridge, being as he is very serious about his wine, was bothered more by a technical detail than by the cheesy gimmicks and tangled plot of The Family Trade. I can't say I blame him, even tho my own tastes run toward beer and distilled beverages.

Wine is one of those things, like cars and guns, which some people care about a great deal, and which really aren't difficult to research enough to get correct. You either have one character offer up "an unassuming little vintage" which the other character recognises as something special, or you go to the trouble to get the details correct.
