Straight from the vintners’ mouths

Wine tends to bring out the poetic ““ or prosaic ““ tendencies in many of us, not least among vintners themselves. A few choice words from those folks:

“Excellent wine generates enthusiasm, and whatever one does with enthusiasm is generally successful.” ““ Phillipe de Rothschild

Andre“Every wine needs a friend.  ““ Andre Tchelistcheff, Napa legend (left)

“Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living.” ““ Robert Mondavi

“People of balance age as gracefully as wines of balance.” ““ John Jordan, Jordan

“Artists and poets still find life’s meaning in a glass of wine.” ““ Joy Sterling, Iron Horse
