A Little Wine Humor
Every now and then we all need to step back from our daily grind and enjoy a laugh or two. Below are some quotes about wine that I hope you enjoy.
“Wine in itself is an excellent thing”
Pope Pius XII
“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing”
“By making this wine vine known to the public, I have rendered my country as great a service as if I had enabled it to pay back the national debt.”
“Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance.”
“Wine makes a man more pleased with himself; I do not say it makes him more pleasing to others.”
“I’m like old wine. They don’t bring me out very often, but I’m well preserved.”
Rose Kennedy (1890-1995) On her 100th birthday, 1991.
“Men are like fine wine. They all start out like grapes, and it’s our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something with which you’d like to have dinner with.”
“Women are like fine wine. They all start out fresh, fruity and intoxicating to the mind and then turn full-bodied with age until they go all sour and vinegary and give you a headache.”
“Who took the cork out of my lunch?”
“If you drink, don’t drive. Don’t even putt.”
