Wine Quote of the Week


Then wine bottles were brought up, carefully sealed and labelled.  'FALERNIAN, CONSUL OPIMIUS, ONE HUNDRED YEARS OLD.'  While we were examining the labels, Trimalchio clapped his hands.  'Wine has a longer life than us poor mortals,' he signed; 'so let us refresh our palates.  Wine is life.  I am giving you real Opimian.'

-- Petronius, The Saatyricon
