Wine storage Edit

Wine and other alcoholic beverages were often kept in special cellars created for the sole purpose of storing wine, called wine cellars.

(TV: The Visitation, Day of the Daleks; PROSE: Decalog 2: Lost Property)

The Doctor Edit

Several incarnations of the Doctor enjoyed drinking wine, with the third incarnation of the Doctor in particular enjoying a glass or two of red wine while guarding Auderly House, saying to Jo; "That's a most good-humoured wine. A touch sardonic, perhaps, but not cynical. A most civilised wine, one after my own heart." (TV: Day of the Daleks) The Fourth Doctor described 1979 as more of a "table wine" of a year. (TV: City of Death) By his ninth incarnation, the Doctor could identify the year and place of origin of wine by its taste. (PROSE: The Clockwise Man)

(TV: The Evil of the Daleks) He rarely showed interest in food and drink outside the TARDIS unless it was a means by which to suss out information.
