Spain sets new wine tasting world record.

Now this strikes me as one of the easier world records to beat. Aranda del Duero town council puts out an advert telling people that they get to taste some free wine, vote on it, and at the same time beat another world record. Now the Spanish love the whole Guinness Book of World Records concept (it was a popular TV show a couple of years ago, smashing great records like ‘fastest indoor soccer penalty’) and they love wine, so, how many people do you think they got to turn up?

The answer’s in the first comment below, and the winning wine was Abadia-Retuerta, in case you’re wondering!

    5,095 people turned up. I reckon that if you held a similar event in Leicester Square, London, promising free wine, say on a Friday night, you could add a couple of zeros to that amount!
