Momo meets Pinot

On past Saturday, mom was flipping through a magazine that
she picked up at LCBO, the 'official' liquor store
and screamed. :D
"Looooooooook, Momo! it's MOMO!! MOMO is finally available here!"
????????????
(Am I here under your desk????)
(Enlarge photo. The bottle on left is me, MOMO.)
******************
Btw, let us explain what LCBO is.
It's Liquor Control Board of Ontario.
(Yep, humans' alcohol consumption has to be
controlled. hehehe..!)
LCBO stores are the only places to sell hard liquor in Ontario.
Sounds strict, huh??
We've known this Momo wine for a while. (click here).
If we remember correctly, our sissy Momo's SS and another sissy
Asta's mommi and daddi had its Pinot-Noir.
But our pawrents didn't want to order a box from miles away
so we waited and waited until this day!
"Hello MOMO!"
Mom checked the online inventory so she knew exactly which store to go.
Good job, mom!
It's very neat to see our names on the label. :D :D
As you can see, they made a long journey from NZ where our friends
Their official site says Momo means 'offspring' in Maori.
So.... we've gotta try!
Our pawrents bought MOMO-Pinot Gris and
Momo-Sauvignon Blanc that are two available ones at the store.
Oh yes, I saw my name on the cap, too.
Moment of the truth....
"Sissy, are we supposed to sniff in a cup first???"
"Ah....It was worth to wait!"
Well... we're doggies so we were only allowed to sip a teeny tiny bit.
Now here's the big question. Where did the rest of the bottle go??
Momo & Pinot/J & R

That's so PAWSOME to have a drink named after you, Momo! Mom wondered if your pawrents liked the drink...she personally have not tried liquor before, so she's a bit curious. LOL!

Hope you have a great week!

That is so cool. I knew Pinot was names after a wine, but not Momo. Did you name them that way on purpose or just a coincidence.So are you still able to walk a straight puppy line LOL! Will you keep the bottle caps as mementos?

How exciting. My pinkies really like NZ sav blanc? What do yours think?

Congratulations! You two and your humans finally got to have a taste of NZ wine with your names!!

My mum has had Momo wine before, and she says she liked it. But, it seems it is not available in every shop that sells wine. My Mum found Momo wine at a small liquor shop in our neighbourhood when they were offering free tasting of Momo wine, and she bought a bottle of it right away because her alias in the cyberspace is Momo. She says that your post made her want to get another bottle of Momo wine at the nearby liquor shop.

I hope you all liked the wine!

You have a nice blog and we'll return.
