Sure there are meals paired with wines, meats cooks in wines, and then there are the animals that are fed the wines... wait, what? Recently a pair of Berkshire pigs were fed ice wine, approximately 200 milliliters per day of 2006 Trius Vidal, for forty days. At the culmination of this experiment, the two pricey, 300-pound hogs were served to eighty-two anxious patrons of Niagara-on-the-Lake's Hillebrand restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed. I'm not sure if the $50 bottles given to the pigs was money well spent but I certainly appreciate the idea.
