rink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved.
-- Old saying
Some of the greatest pleasures of life lie in simplicity. The humble grapes that are fermented into wine only go on to prove this point.
Whoever invented wine -- intentionally or by accident -- may have never thought the drink would go on to perennially grace fine-dining tables across the world.
Let us explore what is it that has had many a connoisseur appreciating, adulating and finally commending this drink as nonpareil.
New world, new tastes
At one point in time, wines were synonymous with the vineyards of France. While Bordeaux and Burgundy still remain eternal favourites, Italian, South African and Californian wines have also made inroads into the connoisseurs' taste buds.
Some of the latest wines in the market are from our own country. Areas near Nashik and Bangalore have come up very well as the new wine districts of the world.
