Watch Paul the Octopus pick a World Cup winner while I pick the wine

Picking the World Cup winner may be difficult for most, but for an octopus that seems to  have amazing foresight its just a matter of laying his tentacle on the winning team . Paul the Octopus is an remarkable mollusk and his oracle like properties have allowed him to pick the last four rounds of the World Cup.

Currently  Paul has his tentacle on Germany for Saturdays matchup; Germany versus Argentina.  Most odds makers have their bets on Argentina for the win. For your  information Paul also  lives in an aquarium in Germany.

I actually have no idea who will win, nor will I make a guess, but will pick some Argentinean wines (for Argentina, in case they win) with some Calamari like pasta, ala Chef E (for the German Mollusk, in case Germany wins).

Great Argentinean wines for your World Cup viewing pleasure:

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Mendoza  Sleek, polished and alluring with mocha and raspberry. Less than $20. 91 points Wine Spectator
  • Alto Malbec Argentina 3 Reserve 2006 86 Wine Spectator points. Juicy blackberry and raspberry fruit with some toast. 90 point Wine Spectator $20
  • Luigi Bosca Malbec Reserva 2007 (WS 90 pts, 88 pts WA)
  • Finca La Linda Cabernet Sauvignon 2008: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Cheers! Adrienne

  3. Paul is pretty good at predicting World Cup
    Not too sure about the wines. I think I’m better at that!


  4. Funny..Is Paul going into the frying pan to become scungilli?
