My precious

Breaking: important news from the medical community:

Wine is the most precious and the most energy-imparting part of the diet. Its use in family meals saves a third of bread and meat, but more than that, wine stimulates and strengthens the body, warms the heart, develops the spirit of sociability; encourages activity, decisiveness, courage and satisfaction in one’s work.

— Dr. Jules Guyot, 1868

As quoted in The Botanist and the Vintner, by Christy Campbell. Guyot is also the father of a vine trellis training technique still widely used today (including here in the Willamette Valley).

Well, he’s a doctor, so he must be right. I plan to take two swigs and call him in the morning.
