On longevity and more from wine savants

There’s mounting evidence that wine in moderation makes us healthy and wise, if not wealthy. Some testimonials:

“[Wine is] a good counselor, a true friend, who neither bores nor irritates us: It does not send us to sleep, nor does it keep us Simonawake … It is always ready to cheer, to help, but not to bully us.” — Andre Simon (left), French wine authority

“[Wine is] the best elixir for guaranteeing a long life that has ever been invented.” — Leon Douarche, vice president of the French Winegrowers’ Association

“Consuming wine in moderation will help people to die young as late as possible.” — Dr. Philip Norrie

“God made man –
Frail as a bubble;
God made love –
Love made trouble;
God made the vine –
Was it a sin
That man made wine
To drown trouble in?”
— Anonymous
