I have been buying wine in box for some time now, but usually only to give to our chefs for cooking purposes. It is cheaper than large glass bottles, more eco-friendly, less weight and it stacks better in my storeroom! Recently however, I was asked by a friend of mine, if I would drink box wine and I told him that there was NO way, I would be drinking that stuff. He asked me if I ever had tried it and I said yes, about 5 years ago and I really don't want to do that again. He kept talking about how much these wines have improved and how the wine lasts about two weeks once opened et cetera. So long story short,
Just stumbled across some great wine quotes and thought I would share a few.
Wine is the most civilized thing in the world
- Ernest Hemingway
Wine improves with age. The older I get, the better I like it :)
Compromises are for relationships, not wine.
- Sir Robert Scott Caywood
Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of the life's most civilized pleasures.
- Michael Broadbent
Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance.
- Benjamin Franklin
I hope you get to enjoy some great wine this holiday weekend. I know that I am looking forward to cook some nice lamp tomorrow night and indulge into a nice bottle... I mean glass of Pinot Noir.
