I've got a nice bottle of Pays d'Oc which I will open up shortly. I mainly drink French wines, but also Italian, Spanish, Californian, Australian and South African. I can't stand that Austrian stuff...

It'd take more than a Chimay Rouge, a bottle of Pays d'Oc and a bottle of Beaujolais nouveau. The Austrian wine, maybe....

Have you tried Austrian (actually German, but also used in Czech Republik and in Austria) appellations (qualitatswein mit pradikat) beerenauslese, trocken beerenaslese or eisewein?

By the way, my favourite are Tokaji Aszu. Sadly, there is no very wide choice of that delicious wine in the UK. Actually, only Waitros and M&S sell them in quite high prices, relatively 23 pounds for 1/2 litre of 9 year old Aszu 5 and 27 for 13 year old Aszu4. It was also available in Morrisons until recently in really good price (17 pounds) but I think I was only person buying it, so they cut the price by 3 and sold it out.

Well, to be at least a little on topic, it's probably worth to mention that Tokaj region is divided by Slovak-Hungarian (formerly Czechoslovak - Hungarian border demarcated after treaty of Trianon) border and both sides have rights to produce Tokaj, called alsoTokajské.

No I can't say I have. It's usually Blaufränkisch or Zweigelt around here. But I love the good ol' hazelnutschnapps...

Russian "avtostrada na Berlin" sign in post(?)-WWII Germany, posted here
There is speculation about the date of this photo; it could be from the late stage of WWII or (more likely) from shortly after the war. The former GDR did have sings in Cyrillic until the 1950's, especially in areas of Soviet troop concentration.

I have no clue that the Russian word for motorway is "avtostrada". It's obviously a calque from Italian. I know that the word autostrada is used also in Rumanian, Polish and Albanian.
However, for Russian language, Google suggests also автомагистраль that should be something like "avtomagistral".

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

My dictionary tells me that both avtostrada and avtomagistral are correct in Russian

Even the Flemish use autostrada at times or even autopiste. As long as it isn't Dutch...

They certainly don't use autoroute, they use autosnelweg sporadically, but if they can do it the Mediterranean way they will. After all it's south of Holland and the weather is always nice.

It's not a matter of being different - they don't speak the same language.

English-speaking Québécois (or Quebeckers) do say "autoroute," though, pronounced as if it were an English word.

And they're all good churchgoing Roman Catholics, too.

You're talking through your hat at this point.

It would not be a calque. A loan word perhaps, after transliteration. Calques require there to be some literal translation involved and the word here remains the same.

Term 'autostrada' is comonly used in Lithuania to describe motorway, altough official word is 'automagistralė'. Remain from Soviet times when almost all constructions were done by then.
