“In Vino Veritas.” ( In wine, truth.) Pliny The Elder [Quote on bottom of shoe] Just to set the record straight, you shouldn’t worship wine. With that said, there’s a certain amount of “truth” that can be derived from the fermented grape. One can find out who your friends are, who wants to spend time with you, relax and get to know you over a bottle of wine. Offering up a cork (with bottle to follow!) for friendship is one of the most truthful things we can do.
