Ladybugs love aphids. Aphids love wine. There’s a wine called “Ladybug.” It’s beautiful, dude.

To kill those pesty, uh, pests that were eating up his vineyard profits, Lolonis Vineyard imported ladybugs. Not just a few, mind you, but 5 million ladybugs. That’s at least a shopping bag full.

Since 2000, seven Lolonis wines have scored 90 or more points in Wine Spectator ratings. They harvest 80% of their grapes by hand. Must be crunchy walking through the vines.

Here’s to Lolonis Ladybug Wines!

Circus haters, grab the next flight to Gladstone for free wine!

From the article:

GREG Hall is betting Gladstone people are in for an “I can’t believe it” experience as a spectator at the Great Moscow Circus.

And the show’s general manager is offering a bottle of wine to anyone who’s not satisfied.

“The show still has all the fun and laughs, but we’ve added a little bit of devilry, a little bit of thrills and spills excitement,” he said.

“It’s got an edge of having to close your eyes. In the finale we have the globe of death where four motor bike riders, inside a four-metre steel globe, are all travelling at 80 km/hr at the same time.”

Mr Hall isn’t letting on what happens.
