Well, we will finish this introduction with a famous quote by William Shakespeare that still give me goosebumps every time that I’m reading it:
Wine: “ A noble beverage, drawing its tonics from the minerals of the earth
its balm from the sun, sheltered by the vineyard;
Its diversity of fragrances from the breezes that caress its flowers,
delight of epicurean palates, honey of dreams,
culmination of intellects, light which illuminates the spirit,
our lips kiss it, our minds meditate on it. »
