What are these?
Hmm… There are few wine bottles in the cupboard…
The bottles covered in some kind of raggy material are filled with wine. During the Portuguese rule in India, wine was brought to India on ships. Goa, being a coastal area, has a very hot and humid weather. And warm wine.. never heard of it, right? Covering the bottles with woven jute kept the wine cool, even during hot summers. Not that there were no refrigerators in the 19th century…Well, that’s saved for next week’s MMC.
