Do you know a great wine quote and wish to share it?
“I drink (wine) when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.”
Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.
Wine is the most healthful and most hygienic of beverages.
Beer is made by men, wine by God.
Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.
We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine.
Truth comes out in wine.
Pliny the Elder
If you go back to the Greeks and Romans, they talk about all three – wine, food, and art – as a way of enhancing life.
Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.
Paulo Coelho, Brida
