Over the years centuries, wine has brought happiness to all manner of us. A few folks who have articulated that sentiment deftly:

“And wine that maketh glad the heart of man.” — Psalms 104:15

More“What though youth gave us love and roses, age still leaves us friends and wine.” — Thomas More (left)

“A bottle of good wine, like a good act, shines ever in the retrospect.” —Robert Louis Stevenson

“Always carry a corkscrew, and the wine shall provide itself.” — Basil Bunting, British poet

“Food is the body of good living. Wine is its soul.” — Clifton Fadiman, U.S. essayist

“The wines that one best remembers are not necessarily the finest that one has ever tasted, and the highest quality may fail to delight so much as some far more humble beverage drunk in more favorable surroundings.” — H. Warner Allen (from the wine list of Commander’s Palace in New Orleans)
