And you thought wine was just something to drink with a meal… or to sip while reading a good book.
It is both of those things. But it also is much more… as the words of Frances Tabeek, D.H. Lawrence and a Medieval German proverb so vividly demonstrate…
* Frances Tabeek: “A good wine is like a gentle kiss – its effect throughout the meal is scintillatingly sensual in an elegantly understated way.”
* D.H. Lawrence: “If we sip the wine, we find dreams coming upon us out of the imminent night.”
* Medieval German Proverb: “Drink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved.”
