This week sees the 50th Anniversary of mankind’s greatest achievement of the 20th century. The United States’ commitment to land humans on the moon before 1970 was a spectacularly ambitious goal: NASA’s entire computing power for the entire mission was less than that found in a modern mobile phone. When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to step on to the moon America affirmed its place as the ultimate western global superpower. Although recent US history may be viewed as more fractious, we should all celebrate this momentous event when humans took their first baby steps in to the universe. And what better way to do so than with one of these American wines.
