Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

When the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals go to the theatre, we don't expect intermission wine served in plastic wine glasses to be good, but why shouldn't it be? Is The Wizard of Oz not worthy of a decent or at least whimsical wine such as Wicked Witch Shiraz or Toto's Best Pinot Grigio? We ordered Placido because we thought it might transport us via placebo effect to somewhere approaching the Emerald City. With a straw man hue and notes of Toto's fur, it was unfortunately not served cold enough to make it out of Kansas.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
