Random quote about wine

Hugh MacLeod had an interesting though around wine. It’s just an observation but it made me laugh. So here’s a random quote, I’m not sure how random the thought was though :-) Hugh?

“As any former choirboy will know, wine is mentioned a lot in The Bible. Funny how they don’t talk about the quality much.

You read “Jesus, knowing that tonight was his last night on earth, offered his disciples wine”, or “King David, being full of internal conflict, drank a lot of wine, and then went home to give Queen Bathsheba a good seeing-to.”

But you don’t read, “Jesus, knowing that tonight was his last night on earth, offered his disciples an unpretentious little Sauvignon with undertones of blackcurrant and lemons.”

Or “King David, being full of internal conflict, downed a few sips of a delightfully characterful Chateau Le Feuvre, and then went home to give Queen Bathsheba a good seeing-to.”

Why not? Because maybe, just maybe, it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. If it mattered, they would’ve fit it in there somehow.”

It works for me anyway, I definitely do need to try out Stormhoek one day. But maybe I just like wine…
