Quote: On Wine and Place

Picture: Sonoma

“Or we can claim this world of places.  We can claim the love that lives in hills and vines, in trees and birds and smells, in buildings and ovens and human eyes, of everything in our world that makes itself at home and calls on us to do the same. The value of wine, beyond the sensual joy it gives us, lies in what it shows us – not only its own hills and rivers, but the road home.”  – Terry Theise, Reading Between the Wines.
