No nation was ever drunk when wine was cheap.

Thomas Jefferson

Wine is a peep-hole on a man.


The new wine is dying on the vine. How much must you age before you're ageless?

Saul Williams

Who loves not wine, women and song, Remains a fool his whole life long.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Beauty is worse than wine; it intoxicates both the holder and the beholder.

Aldous Huxley

Love, with very young people, is a heartless business. We drink at that age from thirst, or to get drunk; it is only later in life that we occupy ourselves with the individuality of our wine.

Isak Dinesen

What is man, when you come to think upon him, but a minutely set, ingenious machine for turning, with infinite artfulness, the red wine of Shiraz into urine?

Isak Dinesen

A good prince will tax as lightly as possible those commodities which are used by the poorest members of society: grain, bread, beer, wine, clothing, and all other staples without which human life could not exist.

Desiderius Erasmus

Age appears best in four things: old wood to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.

Sir Francis Bacon

What I do and what I dream include thee, as the wine must taste of its own grapes.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

What grape to keep its place in the sun, taught our ancestors to make wine?

Cyril Connolly

Wine is bottled poetry.

A thousand cups of wine do not suffice when true friends meet, but half a sentence is too much when there is no meeting of minds.

Chinese Proverb

Hide our ignorance as we will, an evening of wine soon reveals it.

Heraclitus Of Ephesus

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

Henry David Thoreau

Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good.

Alice May Brock

Wine resonates with its environment in ways we're just beginning to understand.

Clark Smith

There's a world of sparkling wine that doesn't come from that tiny place called Champagne...You may be pouring a lot of bubbles this season, but that doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money.

Joshua Wesson

We always have a few bottles open at any given time for customers to try. If you've tasted it, you personalize the situation. You've tried it and you know if it's good. I'm not going to sell a wine if I can't recommend it.

Connie Bounds

Cost is a consideration. But that's not to say wine companies can't afford it.

Scott Nester

A lot of our grapes go to the Central Valley. These producers can?t justify higher wine grape prices.

Dennis Collins

It is the hour to be drunken! to escape being the martyred slaves of time, be ceaselessly drunk. On wine, on poetry, or on virtue, as you wish.

Charles Baudelaire

The one in Del Mar was the place to buy wine.

Sean Fisher

In the case of the wine cellar, it is so private and quiet, and it's away from the maddening crowd. There is nobody walking by. The atmosphere is tremendous. It is a very rare place to have a working wine cellar to have your dinner in.

Bruce Snyder

The crop value was $4.8 million and there were 762,000 gallons of wine produced.

Tonya Rideout

While Foster's scale and efficiency sees us better placed than anyone from a production perspective, the (Australian) market is struggling to absorb the huge volumes of wine that are discounting and squeezing sales margins.

Trevor O'hoy

While placing a critter on a label doesn't guarantee success, it is important that wine makers realize that there is a segment of consumers who don't want to have to take wine too seriously. Not only are they willing to have fun with wine, they may just feel 'good' about an animal label presentation.

Danny Brager

The Fox reopens as a very flexible space, an art deco convention center really. For example, we can use the new lobby spaces as dinner seating for banquets. We have also added a facility that caterers can use to serve meals, and we'll have a license for beer and wine.

Herb Stratford

Craft beer volume growth far exceeded that of large brewers, wine and spirits in 2005. And even though imported beer grew nicely in 2005, craft beer grew at a faster rate.

Paul Gatza

Wine and spirits are outperforming beer, ... It's been a reversal of a decade-long trend.

Benj Steinman

It's been incredibly satisfying to see music lovers embrace the concept - we look forward to another summer of great music, food and wine in the best wineries.

Michael Newton

The Valley is all about liquor. Wine, and sparkling wine, is tough to move. That's a flip-flop from the Bay Area, where they do higher volumes of wine than liquor.

Tony Baker

Trivial details have been summoned, in part, to make a satirical point about upper-middle-class marriage-that the whole thing can slip away between the white wine and the arugula salad.

David Denby

This is very effective, particularly in department stores. Wide aisles are generally used by supermarkets to create space around goods which shoppers will always buy, such as frozen food, while narrower aisles help sell more impulse-driven items such as cakes or wine.

Karl Mckeever

Who hath sorrow? Who hath woe?/ They who do not answer no;/ They whose feet to sin incline/ While they tarry at the wine.

Carry Nation

Wine makes a man more pleased with himself; I do not say that it makes him more pleasing to others.

Samuel Johnson

Anton is such a fun artist, because his paintings are all about food, wine and sommeliers.

Paul Ferzacca

It's all right, Arthur. The white wine came up with the fish.

Herman J. Mankiewicz

Bruce and I share a love of wine. He has been a big help. We share equipment; we have a great partnership.

Dan Matthies

We haven't really changed anything with the Riesling since we started making it in 1980 - always aiming for an off-dry style with about 1.5 percent residual sugar, which is tart enough to give you that pleasing sweet-and-sour tang that goes so well with spicy foods, yet rich enough to stand alone as a sipping wine.

Allen Green

A nice red wine with the filet and all these flavors go great together.

Darrell Jensen

He has a specific brand of wine, a specific brand of everything.

Nancy Bertnik

The thing that I like that is very popular is a sparkling wine called Jay, by Jordan Vintners out of California.

Jim Laughlin

In my seminar 'Wine Info' I want to excite people about the fun of pairing wines with food and friends. I want to make people comfortable with labels and grapes and alcohol content so they can make educated decisions when purchasing wines.

Jeff Graham

Not only is this the biggest event in the history of the South African wine industry, but it is also the first time since its inception in 2000 that Cape Wine is being opened by a cabinet minister, indicating the high level of commitment from Government.

Su Birch

Lots of liquor. Mostly beer and wine.

Don Peritz

He will be there to present the wine Saturday and will be wandering around, really making himself available to talk about personal tasting notes and personal wine observations.

Amy Foster Devore

Blind tasting is the only way to taste. If you are looking at the label, you might give the wine a break, or any defect could possibly be seen in a positive light.

Larry Stone

So, I simply switched over to wine because it was not carbonated.

Peter Steele

Laughter is wine for the soul-laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness. the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.

Sean O'Casey

I'm still going to enjoy my life off the pitch and I don't think that has interfered with my life on it. In still playing, my body does not allow me to do some of the stuff I did before. The reality is I can't do the two. But I will still go out for a meal and a glass of wine and smoke a cigarette if I feel like it.

Russell Latapy

I think the big question is how much more expensive it will make the wine. The real test of it is once it's produced and on the shelf, what are people willing to pay?

Aaron White

Wine gives courage and makes men more apt for passion.


They'd be great paired with a red wine.

Linda Pierce

People typically only buy wine in grocery stores when they already know they like it. The type they like really is based on the number of taste buds you have.

Darby Williams

That sounds insane to me. Why animals go with wine, I don't know. The average consumer can't tell one wine from another, did you know that?

Ken Beauchamp

For their drink, they draw a liquor from barley or other grain; and ferment the same, so as to make it resemble wine.


We will celebrate in the typical Vin Bin fashion of hoisting a great glass of wine at the end of the night.

Rick Lombardi

Wine culture is so complicated that sometimes people come up with the name based on the label alone. It needs to be pleasing.

James Trent

Age is just a number. It's totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.

Joan Collins

The majority of our competitors use couriers, so you don't have contact with people who know about wine. We wanted to keep the staff and professionalism of the store in our online business.

Jeremy Palmer

Most Floridians who drink wine today drink out-of-state wine. Now they will be able to order it on the Internet rather than going to a retailer or supermarket. It will mean fewer middlemen and a better deal for the consumer.

Terry Mcelroy

Men are like wine - some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.

Pope John Xxiii

Alcoholic beverages contain significant amounts of calories. A 12-ounce can of beer for example contains about 150 calories. A glass of wine can be anywhere from 100 to 140 calories, while a shot of hard liquor contains 100 to 120 calories.

Julie Raeder Schumacher

I have eyewitnesses saying that Michael Jackson regularly pours white wine into soda cans. That's 'Jesus' juice.' Red wine is called 'Jesus' blood.' And these boys were given this wine.

Everything has changed. We're now recognized internationally. Our restaurant and wine brand are somewhat immortalized by the movie.

Frank Ostini

Look, if the lights go out in Naples, we cheer and have another bottle of wine.

Jim Duggan

They get their $5 (worth) the minute they walk in the door and have a glass of wine and taste the cheese.

Arthur Jacobus

I'd do a nude scene for world peace or if I were facing some serious jail time, but I'm also a sucker for a good bottle of wine and candlelight.

Jorja Fox

In the long run, a ban is inevitable. Where there's been a ban elsewhere in the world, revenues dip then bounce back. In our non-smoking pubs we're getting more women, more families and selling more wine and food.

Jim Clarke

Not only are these fine wines presented in eco-friendly packaging, these smaller formats will give consumers the convenience and versatility in their wine drinking occasions.

Andy Alexander

WINE, n. Fermented grape-juice known to the Women's Christian Union as 'liquor,' sometimes as 'rum.' Wine, madam, is God's next best gift to man.

Tom Burke

You can do anything with beer that you can do with wine, ... Beer is great for basting or marinating meat and fish.

Grant Wood

Good days are to be gathered like grapes, to be trodden and bottled into wine and kept for age to sip at ease beside the fire. If the traveler has vintaged well, he need trouble to wander no longer; the ruby moments glow in his glass at will.

Freya Stark

I never eat between meals and I don't eat junk food. I mostly stick to fish, vegetables and chicken. But I do love chocolate, coffee, red wine and cigarettes...

Jerry Hall

Wine has enjoyed the most positive image it has had in years from consumers, the media and government.

Robert Koch

He's playing at a high level. He just seems to get better, like a bottle of wine. The older he gets, the better it is.

Tim Marcum

Back in the '60s, Santa Barbara County was known for screw-cap wines -- that's what you'd drink at a party after everything else was gone. In the last 20 years, the county has come into its own with wine-making on a very high scale.

Lee Tomkow

We've just got to take the old rules and pour new wine in there.

Patrick Rose

The voice is an instrument that you really must take time to develop. It's like a good red wine Give it time.

Cecilia Bartoli

I told the company that I really needed to acquaint myself with the wines of Europe. Alex was old enough to take notice of things, and he showed a real interest in the wine business, even at that time.

Bill Ryan

They know food and wine. And they said we had some of the best products there. For them to say that was really something.

Carol Cohee

If you are making a product to sell to a winery, you absolutely have to be there. Everyone in the wine industry is going to be there. It's going to be a full two days of nonstop meetings and talking with customers.

Jeff Sherman

Those are two very solid indications that freshness as a concept for wine is a marketable, and a pretty profitable, thing to hang your hat on.

John Gillespie

So that the old joy, modest as cake, as wine and friendship Will stay with us at the last, backed by the night Whose ruse gave it our final meaning.

John Ashbery

What Sir Alex said cost him a bottle of wine. I had a nice bottle of red to give him for his birthday, but after what he said he can sod off.

Phil Gartside

Our goal is to teach our students the fine points of food preparation and the discerning art of wine selection. Our talented chefs are uniquely suited to this task, and we are confident that our tradition of excellence and passion for food will be evident in our classes.

Jim Barnes

I don't think wine has anything over beer in terms of health benefits. But we won't say that. It's better that others study it and then we have an open dialogue about it.

Robert Lachky

We're gaining traction in the U.S. market. Wine is entering the mainstream of American life for the first time.

Jon Fredrikson

She was inspired by a major hot flash and a bottle of wine.

Kathi Glist

We toured the winery. That was really interesting, and I think almost all of the ladies bought a bottle of wine.

Libby Johnson

A small cooling unit with inexpensive racking costs about $1,500 for a 6-foot by 6-foot, 500-bottle wine cellar. But the sky is the limit if money is no problem. There are wine cellars . . . in the $100,000-plus range. Whatever you build, plan on spending $3 to $5 per bottle of wine for racking with a quality wood.

Craig Allen

There are moments, above all on June evenings, when the lakes that hold our moons are sucked into the earth, and nothing is left but wine and the touch of a hand.

Charles Morgan

We believe May 26 would be a great opportunity for promoting Georgia as the cradle of wine.

Georgy Arveladze

In those days, many Italian immigrants fermented wine in their basement and there are stories of old-timers getting them out and pouring them on the fire.

Aaron Peskin

We don't think you need to pay $50 for quality wines, so we kept the wine list reasonable. The only really expensive wines were customer requests. You can go to chain restaurants and get a bad glass of wine for $9. Here, you'll get a glass of great wine for less.

Chef Michael Coury

After God, long live wine.

Rosalia De Castro

Just make sure they have a glass of wine first.

Larry Bortniker

My newsletter takes the mystique out and gives the consumer additional power. They can walk into a wine shop and know what is a value and not.

Neil Monnens

Most wine importers hedge about 12 months; in other words, to the end of the current price list.

Robert Gruber

You can have people round and flood out here on a summer's evening, or pull out a rug and have a bottle of wine. It is great for children, too. Our son used to run over the back through the garden to play with the little girl who played Hermione in the Harry Potter films.

Chris Tookey

That one was actually swapped for some wine originally.

Geoffrey Cassidy

People have to understand that the wine business is not something you do for the money, ... You do it because you want to create great wine.

Peter Bell

There are days when solitude, for someone my age, is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.


Would provide Vincor's shareholders with an immediate cash premium far greater than we believe the company can deliver on its own, given today's increasingly competitive and consolidating global wine industry.

Richard Sands

In the competition, we try to keep the judging as objective as possible. The wines are judged blind, meaning all the bottles are coded, so the judges don't know which maker is responsible for the selections. Even the stewards don't know who the wine makers are.

Alexis Hartung

The sessions are $40 per golfer and that will give you four sessions and a wine and cheese party at the end.

Al Shropshire

We're grateful for the support we received when we first opened a year and a half ago. We knew, putting the business plan together, that this was a city that would support the type of store that we wanted to open -- a cozy, friendly, warm wine and cheese shop.

Rick Lombardi

Sharon has transformed his image from that of a headstrong adventurer into a father of the nation. Like a good wine, he has aged well.

Dominique Moisi

The wine was the best. It doesn't get any better than Dad's wine.

Bonnie Buchholz

APHORISM, n. Predigested wisdom. The flabby wine-skin of his brain Yields to some pathologic strain, And voids from its unstored abysm The driblet of an aphorism. 'The Mad Philosopher,' 1697.

Ambrose Bierce

I didn't plant Gewurztraminer because I already had Riesling and felt that it was my niche wine. And after all, there was already plenty of good Gewurztraminer in Anderson Valley.

Allen Green

Days of wine and roses laugh and run away, / Like a child at play.

Johnny Mercer

This has always been about the fact that the Michigan wine industry has been so successful that (distributors) consider it competition. But there really isn't anything else out there creating that kind of interest for tourism.

Rick Coates

Either he ordered some very expensive wine or maybe he ordered a lot of take-out or maybe he is a very generous tipper.

Rahim Jaffer

I only drink wine, and it's a bit early for that.

Ann Armstrong

Well I mean it's a great recipe. I mean it's the ground beef, it's marinated with a little red wine. We've got the vegetables in there, got our champ, which is our garlic mashed potatoes baked on top.

Ray Murphy

We have a half a million people visiting Virginia wine country annually. Seventy-five percent of those people are local.

Tonya Rideout

We'll never know who spilled the wine.

David Kraemer

It is better to hide ignorance, but it is hard to do this when we relax over wine.


Seduction is often difficult to distinguish from rape. In seduction, the rapist often bothers to buy a bottle of wine.

Andrea Dworkin

It was history 30 years ago, and it may be history again. We won't know until we taste the wine.

Peter Marks

Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup And I'll not look for wine.

Ben Jonson

I spent ninety percent of my money on wine, women and song and just wasted the other ten percent.

Ronnie Hawkins

We supply wine to all the guests - but most of the guests don't bring the wine on. But I drink wine before the show. Everyone does.

Graham Norton

I think part of it is that my location has been good right here, next to Wine Sellers and Sullivan Taylor (Coffee House). At Christmas time we certainly compliment each other.

Jane Reynolds

They've just become so much less intimidating and more approachable, especially to people who don't drink wine.

Jon Fredrikson

I wanted to be sensitive and cater to locals but also satisfy the wine-country traveler, and I think we've accomplished that.

Charlie Palmer

It's getting people to notice the product. If the wine in the bottle isn't good, they'll only buy it once.

Mark Feinberg

We are on the cusp of really creating a homespun wine culture in the United States.

David Sloane

We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer tasting them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.

Charles Caleb Colton

I put everything I can into the mulberry of my mind and hope that it is going to ferment and make a decent wine. How that process happens, I'm sorry to tell you I can't describe.

John Hurt

It's really going to be on a case-by-case basis. I suppose there is that danger of diluting the overall message and creating some confusion. From where I sit, we certainly are placing a priority on branding Washington state as the wine region.

Robin Pollard

The Australian wine industry has been going through the industry equivalent of the perfect storm.

David Clarke

We laugh really hard when we go out. We'll have a glass of wine, or we'll go to a club and dance. I'm not sitting around like a hermit; I'm enjoying my life!

Mary J. Blige

That wine drinking is more effete than beer drinking? No question.

Joseph Epstein

We?re also hoping to send our guests home with a gift bag that includes red wine, nuts and chocolate, because these are good for both the head and the heart.

Nancy Litzau

That's the most important thing. You don't want to lose the hard work of all those placements. It becomes doubly hard the following year, no matter how good your wine is, to get that placement back.

Delia Viader

Men, I feel are like wine - before buying, a real connoisseur takes a small sip, and spits them out.

Jill Tweedie

The bicycle and wine tourism go hand in hand. People like to tour the wine country on their bicycles.

Kathy Coffey

People come with their friends, they come early and have wine and go around and bid. It's just a lovely setting, and they always have good food.

Nancy Andrews

Restaurants are critical partners to the Washington wine industry because the restaurant is where consumers often have their first wine experience. The Washington Wine Restaurant Awards program recognizes those establishments that exhibit strong support of Washington wines with innovative and educational promotions.

Robin Pollard

The wine I make is not available for under $30. There's no way for me to make money here.

Lance Cutler

Virginia's been making wine for 400 years.

Chris Pearmund

Pretty wife, old wine - many friends.

Bulgarian Proverb

Even an atheist may be ready to concede that a good wine is the drink of gods.

Paul Carvel

It was the first jalapeno martini I ever had. He also served a chocolate martini. They were unheard of at that time. Everybody was serving wine.

Mark Hanna

The bar is a really easy place to save money. Instead of just offering everything from top-shelf liquor to house wine, just limit it to wine, beer and soft drinks.

Doug Gordon

The whole point of it is to bring community back to agriculture. I don't know of any other wine-making community or area that produces such a wine.

Matt Cookson

It?s like with wine. Taste it, try it, think about what?s going to go with that.

Gene Briggs

In Jackson's private world, instead of cookies and milk, he substituted wine, vodka and bourbon.

Tom Sneddon

We are going to give them a choice of a number of different wines that fit their taste profile and that's one thing we offer that the big guys don't. There's a lot of wine out there. This is a growth area for consumption. You don't have to spend $50 or $100 to buy an outstanding bottle of wine.

Tom Hart

I was encouraged by the clientele, people wanting recommendations. Being able to educate and create a certain enthusiasm about wine was what I really liked.

Daniel Johnnes

It's been dry so it's made some wonderful wine. Of course most of our wines are done with fruit. The same thing happens there. If it's a sweeter fruit it makes a little bit better wine. So it's been a good year for making wine.

Danny Johnson

We're going to get the French guys back over here, give them some wine and get these courts back in the shape they're supposed to be in.

Jim Mcingvale

They stoop like subservient wine waiters.

Henry Blofeld

He's not a hermit, and he doesn't hide behind trees or anything, He's been rather active in the community. The largest charity fundraiser in South Florida is the Naples Winter Wine Festival. He's a director of that.

Phil Lewis

Some of the aromas you detect in sake are from the same chemicals you detect in wine -- melon, green apple, yeast. On the third or fourth day of brewing, it (the brewing sake) smells overwhelmingly of bananas.

Chris Pearce

I'm like old wine. They don't bring me out very often, but I'm well preserved.

Rose F. Kennedy

What you see here is a living experiment to find the ideal wine for the region. Not just in terms of quality, but in terms of the soil, the weather and pests.

Hans Backhoff

An extremely competitive retail market is pushing extensive discounting and large volumes of wine at low prices, and New World competitors from South America and South Africa are also impacting on the market.

Trevor O'hoy

People still come up to me and say you're the guy who hijacked the Napa Valley Wine Train. That was 16 years ago.

Lance Cutler

There's probably 1,400 or 1,500 comic book items on the site at any time. It remains a very popular area of the site. I'm sure people buy and sell comic books the same way they do stocks, other securities or fine wine.

Kevin Pursglove

It got too expensive to put on, so the tickets got too expensive. And the food got too expensive. The Italian Street Fair didn't have the old charm. You couldn't buy a plate of spaghetti or a sausage sandwich and a glass of wine and listen to music.

Nancy Howell

Mexicans are educating themselves and becoming serious consumers of wine, and sommeliers in Mexico City are starting to take notice.

Donald Miller

We're in a global wine economy now. If you're out of grapes, you're out of grapes.

George Rose

A beautiful building, an eye-catching building, will draw people in to experience that wine. ... A potential customer leaves the winery with a wonderful feeling for the whole facility.

Andy Hall

You sell premium wine by giving consumers a sense of place. It's best not sold as a commodity like wheat.

Kurt Gollnick

The irony of it in our Holland restaurant you can only get liquor, no beer or wine. So there are just some maybe out-dated laws that Wyoming today took a step up and voted right.

Tommy Brann

I drink lots of water and lead a healthy lifestyle. No coffee, no smoking, only a little wine and a very good diet.

Susan Hampshire

When preparing the regular menu, you consider the wine. With the bar menu, you have mixed drinks. That requires an easy style, relaxed food that will go with a martini or a beer.

Jason Gould

That's why we're asking to go back and talk to the parishioners. Did he appear to be impaired? How much wine did he drink? ... That would possibly lead to other charges, if he was impaired.

Rick Romley

You have a wine tasting of different years, and we're sort of doing that with our music, giving them a taste of what Journey used to be like.

Jonathan Cain

We want to provide consumers a quick and convenient place to pick up a bottle of wine. Like some of our other popular proprietary brands, Thousand Oaks will be a high quality, great-tasting wine available only at 7-Eleven.

Mark Herron

Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup, And I'll not look for wine.

Benjamin Johnson

I was of the opinion, as were others in his winery, that he should not use the name Gallo, because it was known for medium priced, uh, medium quality wine.

Marvin Shenkin

Have a glass of wine, some pasta, sit a while and chat. Just let the guys know when you're ready to bottle, and they'll set you up.

Tom Kruse

If you are spending a couple days there, at the very least, bring a bottle of wine and some flowers.

Rebecca Black

Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about things, and small people talk about wine.

Charlie Gilson

Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures . . .

M. F. K. Fisher

"I am but as the spark that gleams for a moment,His burning candle consumed me - the moth;His wine overwhelmed my goblet,The master of Rum transmuted my earth to goldAnd set my ashes aflame.

Allama Iqbal

It's not worth worrying about. It wasn't pleasant, but both Martin and I are past it. We plan to have a wine-soaked dinner in the near future.

Lloyd Grove

He had seven pallets of wine left in the building he was clearing out, and he was in the building 10 minutes before we saw the fireball, the orange glow, coming from his area.

Debbie Polverino

It's such a different environment, I can't even tell you. Ten years ago, knocking on somebody's door saying 'Do you have a bottle of wine?', they would have laughed at me. It certainly has gone more toward wine-drinking than just beer-drinking for sure.

Jeff Burton

As the best wine doth make the sharpest vinegar, so the deepest love turneth to the deadliest hate.

John Lyly

These guys, they're married; they've got a couple of kids. Wine is part of their lives, but it's not integrated in a way that they really force themselves to be knowledgeable.

Brian Hilliard

There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.

Sidonie Gabrielle

I thought it was a smart idea. [Wine] was even thinking of just flipping the whole lineup. He was just thinking about flipping it backwards. Just to get something going different.

Lance Thompson

Judgement of beauty can err, what with the wine and the dark.


We learned a lot while we were researching these articles. Our readers who enjoy wine will really enjoy learning about it as well.

Linda Jones

The wine urges me on, the bewitching wine, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words which were better unspoken.


Those outside the industry often do not realize the capital intensity of the wine and grape sector. As the vast majority of holdings are private, often family businesses, the main source of investment capital continues to be private resources, with support from the commercial banking industry.

Barbara Insel

All four elements were happening in equal measure - the cuisine, the wine, the service, and the overall ambience. It taught me that dining could happen at a spiritual level.

Charlie Trotter

EXCESS, n. In morals, an indulgence that enforces by appropriate penalties the law of moderation. Hail, high Excess -- especially in wine, To thee in worship do I bend the knee Who preach abstemiousness unto me -- My skull thy pulpit, as my paunch thy shrine. Precept on precept, aye, and line on line, Could ne'er persuade so sweetly to agree With reason .

Ambrose Bierce

Elephants indisputably like booze, especially Asian elephants where we have many reports of them getting into rice-wine stores and drinking the stuff.

Steve Morris

Cheese, wine, and a friend must be old to be good.

Cuban Proverb

The Kellogg Center has been a great partner for us in the past, and this is the same place where the museum has its Chocolate Party. They do an outstanding job taking care of not only the vendors but planning the event, organizing it and keeping it running, so the opportunity for wine tasting got offered here, too.

Lora Helou

The temptation is to pick the eyes out of the wines to make a great wine, a trophy-winning wine.

David Morris
