Well-scripted wine words

The stage and screen have brought us no shortage of interesting observations on our favorite beverage. A few of my faves:

Corleone• “I like to drink wine more than I used to.” — Vito Corleone in “The Godfather” (left)

• “Give me a bowl of wine. In this I bury all unkindness.”
— Julius Caesar in William Shakespeare’s play

• “The last time that I trusted a dame was in Paris in 1940. She was going out to get a bottle of wine. Two hours later, the Germans marched into France.” — Sam Diamond in “Murder by Death”

• “I love everything that’s old: old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wine.” — Oliver Goldsmith, “She Stoops to Conquer”
