Saturday Wine Tasting Specials

Snake Wine -- Stop by today to sample our new line of wines from Vietnam!

Where can you buy it, and how much?

Available nearly everywhere in Vietnam, snake wine is often made by villagers filling up leftover brandy or Perrier bottles. The jug I bought at the Hanoi airport contained three lizards and cost 335,000 dong, or almost $21. (Okay, I admit, this tempting item cost slightly more than my souvenir price ceiling. But I couldn't resist.)
