Vineyard Fills Fountain Pens with Wine

Should you write with wine? Casa Mariol, a vinyard in Poland, thinks so. It developed an ink that contains its Cabernet Sauvignon. The vinyard then filled pens with the ink and sent them to potential customers along with order forms on which to use them.

Interesting. I've been wondering how teaching children cursive script with a fountain pen versus a pencil would result. I'm guessing the pens didn't use cartridges. I used to use cheap ones (made by Pilot, I think) when I was in middle/high school and those did leak everywhere.
I hadn't had one in years and then randomly found a cheap one (made by Zebra) at the drug store. It's...ok, skips a lot, sometimes doesn't write, and is too fine a point for my liking. What can you expect for less than $5?
Since that rekindled my interest in them I finally bought myself a relatively inexpensive Parker pen with a medium point and I love the thing.

I learned to write on fountain pens - for whatever reason, my grade school teacher thought that it would be good to teach kids who could barely write "the art of penmanship." Needless to say, I ruined quite a few school uniforms (got ink all over them) and my handwriting is now atrocious :)
