Wine Quotes

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

ï Never buy the cheapest wine in any category, as its taste may discourage you from going on. The glass, corks, cartons, and labor are about the same for any wine, as are the ocean freight and taxes for imported wines. Consequently, if you spend a little more, you are likely to get a better wine, because the other costs remain fixed. Cheap wine will always be too expensive.

Alex Bespaloff

Wine is at the head of all medicines; where wine is lacking, drugs are necessary.

Baba Bathra

A bottle of good wine, like a good act, shines ever in the retrospect

Robert Louis Stevenson

Wine cheers the sad, revives the old, inspires the young, makes weariness forget his toil.

Dr Philip Norrie

Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance.

A bottle of wine begs to be shared; I have never met a miserly wine lover.

Clifton Fadiman

Clifton Fadiman

Wine is poetry in a bottle.

Clifton Fadiman

Writing in my sixty-fourth year, I can truthfully say that since I reached the age of discretion I have consistently drunk more than most people would say is good for me. Nor did I regret it. Wine has been for me a firm friend and a wise counsellor. Often...wine has shown me matters in their true perspective, and has, as though by the touch of a magic wand, reduced great disasters to small inconveniences. Wine has lit up for me the pages of literature, and revealed in life romance lurking in the commonplace. Wine has made me bold but not foolish; has induced me to say silly things but not to do them.
