today's wwftd is... vigneron
- the worthless word for the day is: vigneron
[F. < vigne, vine] /VEEN yuh RO(n)E/
(an assist to Barry MacDonald on this)
"Away from her roles as actress and guru, she (sc.
Kerry Armstrong) is a vigneron, pressing grapes at
her property near Eltham and bottling a fine drop
that is sometimes finer than others."
- The Age (Australia) May 4, 2008
"Wine lovers have garnered the image of the passionate
vigneron into an almost spiritual figure, one who
translates the mysteries of the soil into wine."
