24 quotes why wine is one of the finer things in life by The Best You

At The Best You we were thinking about the things that make life fun and enjoyable. One of the constants that we agreed so many people enjoy is wine.

For celebrations, parties, mingling and chatting, wine is one of the drinks that draws people together for fun and laughter.


Here are 24 quotes from some of the great writers and thinkers of the past, about what wine meant to them.

19. We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine. – Eduardo Galeano
