Who owns the land
That bears the grapes
That makes the wine
That tastes as good
As this does.” – Omar Khayyam

And my personal favorites, as I love Champagne and Thomas Jefferson

“I drink champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I'm thirsty.” – Madame Lilly Bollinger

“Wine is a daily necessity for me.” – Thomas Jefferson

    By no means cheese – making up your own, you increase your chances of ending up in a cool wine quote book wine day :) I like it!

    Thanks for the quotes, Felicia! I like that French proverb… think I’ve heard it before, but I forgot how much I liked it.
