Lit wit

I have no idea how good the wine was in their eras, but it obviously was impressive enough to inspire these titans of literature:

“There are no standards of taste in wine. … Each man’s own taste is the standard, and a majority vote cannot decide for him or in any slightest degree affect the supremacy of his own standard.” − Mark Twain

Goethe“I carry on mental dialogues with the shoots of the grapevine, who reveal to me grand thoughts and to whom I can retell wondrous things.” − Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (left)

“If we sip the wine, we find dreams coming upon us out of the imminent night.” − D.H. Lawrence

“Give me wine to wash me clean of the weather-stains of cares.” − Ralph Waldo Emerson
