Some thoughts on wine, from a favourite author

Joanne Harris, in Five Quarters of the Orange:

“Drunkenness, she told us… is a sin against the fruit, the tree, the wine itself.

The thought stayed with me.

Wine, distilled and nurtured from bud into fruit, and then through all the processes that make it what it is, deserves better than to be guzzled by some sot with a headful of nonsense. It deserves reverence, joy, gentleness.”

Sometimes I recite this to myself when I wake up with a hangover 😉
