    If you do that’s fine and dandy, but some people just learn to love wine without knowing what oaky or full-bodied means. There are self-taught pianists who can’t read music, so why shouldn’t you be allowed to drink wine without knowing a bunch of descriptions?

    It’s a shame that two magnificent aspects of life, wine and sleep, can’t be experienced simultaneously. Sadly, sometimes you’ll find yourself staving off sleepiness so you can spend a little more time with the bottle.
