Type: Food & Drink
A red wine of the Shire:
Every one of the various parting gifts had labels, written out personally by Bilbo, and several had... some joke. But, of course, most of the things were given where they would be wanted and welcome.... Old Rory Brandybuck, in return for much hospitality, got a dozen bottles of Old Winyards: a strong red wine from the Southfarthing, and now quite mature, as it had been laid down by Bilbo's father. Rory... voted [Bilbo] a capital fellow after the first bottle.
