Wine is more than simply fermented fruit juice which one drinks to quench one's ordinary thirst. That requirement is better satisfied by water. Rather wine is a unique experience that adds richness to one's life. Fine wine is to the palate as is the stroke of a master painter to the canvas. It is this caress of the senses that makes wine more --much more--than a beverage, and elevates it to an almost spiritual plain. One need only recall that Jesus Christ chose water into wine rather than any other drink.
