Amused: Manager of the Oxford Wine Café George Sandbach outside OUP in Jericho
"THINGS are looking rosé for wine drinkers who are celebrating the corking decision to add 'wine o’clock' to the Oxford English Dictionary.
"Oxford University Press has announced that wine o’clock is one of a variety of new words that have been added to OxfordDictionaries.com.
"It is now officially defined as 'an appropriate time of day for starting to drink wine'.
"The decision was welcomed by George Sandbach, manager of the new Oxford Wine Café in Jericho, which will open next month.
"Mr Sandbach said he was not surprised that wine o’clock was being added to the dictionary because he saw people using it all the time on social media.
"He said: 'I think it’s quite amusing, although it’s always wine o’clock here. It was only a matter of time before it was added.'
"The new Wine Café is scheduled to open on the corner of Little Clarendon Street and Walton Street in three weeks.
"Other words added to the online dictionary today include ‘hangry’ (angry due to a lack of food), as well ‘Brexit’ and ‘Grexit’ (potential British and Greek exits from the EU)."
