This is simply disgusting.  Whilst catching up my reading of a few wine related articles at breakfast, I saw this photograph on wineindustryadvisor.com and let me tell you, it nearly put me off my bran flakes.  Disgusting, I tell ya!
Identified as an Araneus, this two inch long aracnid was found bottoms up, so to speak, by a man in Bristol, England, in a bottle of Tesco Finest white wine he had taken to his mother-in-law's birthday party.  Surprise!

I have arachnophobia!
Does this mean you are trying to keep me away! ;-)

NHW: Me too. It's so disgusting I feel like staying away from my own blog!

Thud: Wasn't Vinoland's grapes and it is long gone. I'll have to check with the ABC about allowable percentages of any insect in a wine.

ALW: Sorry, Jody, never liked Weetabix. I was a 'Ready brek' kid.

2B: I'm on to it!
