Sad problem - White wine needs drinking

I have some cases of White Wine in my cellar that is just past its best. It needs drinking urgently, but there is too much for me to drink on my own. Any suggestions?

Throw a party. You have enough reasons no?
10.10. you announced you will leave Zurich wanting to rent out your flat, yesterday you already lived in Chamby complaining about .... band width I think? So which ever cellar this wine is, throw a good-bye or a we're new here party.

Any suggestions?
From the description, this is an emergency. The federation's approved crisis response is;

1. Open a bottle to allow it to breath.
2. If it does not look like it's breathing, give it mouth to mouth.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 with each bottle.

HaHa!!!!

Thanks for the amusing comments. I was actually wondering if there was anything like the Berry Bros & Rudd wine exchange. However, I do accept liability for not drinking this fine wine before now.

Re: Sad problem - White wine needs drinking

Hi,

Do you have packs of 6 bottles of the same wine? If yes, I'm sure you could sell them without too many issues if your price is reasonable.

Good luck and don't drink it all!
