10 Wine Quotes We Love


 

Sherman's Mom, Grandma Sherlie as the kids called her, was an avid reader and she passed her love of words down to Sherman and his daughter Carly. In the spirit of Grandma Sherlie, we put together ten of our favorite quotes about another one of our favorite things―wine!

2. "In the abstract art of cooking, ingredients trump appliances, passion supersedes expertise, creativity triumphs over technique, spontaneity inspires invention, and wine makes even the worst culinary disaster taste delicious." ―Bob Blumer

3. "One should always be drunk.That's all that matters...But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you choose. But get drunk." ―Charles Baudelaire

4. "[Making wine] is like having children; you love them all, but boy, are they different." ―Bunny Finkelstein

5. "Wine is a living thing. It is made, not only of grapes and yeasts, but of skill and patience. When drinking it remember that to the making of that wine has gone, not only the labor and care of years, but the experience of centuries." ―Allan Sichel

6. "It is the wine that leads me on,
the wild wine
that sets the wisest man to sing
at the top of his lungs,
laugh like a fool―it drives the
man to dancing...it even
tempts him to blurt out stories
better never told." ―Homer, The Odyssey

7. "There's always a wine bully. The one person who did read the 'Wine Spectator,' who tells you what to drink and why the '97 is better than the '98. I want to punch the wine bully in the face. I want to make sure this generation of wine drinkers isn't elitist and snotty. I want it to be about family and bringing people together." ―Gary Vaynerchuk

8. "There’s something about being able to literally consume a work of art―then to divide all that pleasure of it―because it’s a memory. A great wine for me is a memory, it’s an extraordinary experience." ―Robert Parker

9. "His lips drink water
but his heart drinks wine" ―E. E. Cummings

And here is bonus quote about champagne, though not something we make at our winery, it is still something we love to drink.


11. "'Do you know,' he asked in a delicious accent, 'what Dom Pérignon said after inventing champagne?' 'No?' I said. 'He called out to his fellow monks, ‘Come quickly: I am tasting the stars!'" ―John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
