Wine is food, even though many folks don’t view it that way. Regardless, food folks have shared perceptive thoughts on wine for some time now. Among my favorite examples:
• “Having wine every night is such a civilized thing. I would like to see everybody enjoy a glass of wine, release their tensions. I’m very fond of the idea of the family meal, complete with wine.” — Julia Child (left)
•”Wine is a living liquid … Its life cycle comprises youth, maturity, old age, and death. When not treated with reasonable respect, it will sicken and die.” — Julia Child.
• “Good wine, well drunk, can lend majesty to the human spirit.” — M.F.K. Fisher
• “You can’t be a wine snob. You have to keep your mind open. You have no idea where the next great wine is going to come from.” — Katy Sparks, chef
