Wine, Words & Wednesday, No. 71

Today’s words come from American editor and author, Clifton Fadiman.  Fadiman was editor of the New Yorker’s Book Review, and judge of the Book of the Month Club for over 50 years.  He also wrote for Encyclopedia Britannica and hosted the late 1930s radio show, Information Please!  Faidman co-authored the book, The Joys of Wine, with Sam Aaron.

This isn’t Fadiman’s first appearance in Wine, Words & Wednesday.  (Auto-correct keeps changing Fadiman to Radioman.  I’d be annoyed if that wasn’t so perfect.😉)  Radioman also appeared in W3 No. 28, with these words:

A bottle of wine begs to be shared.  I have never met a miserly wine lover.

Today’s Fadiman gem is from the Hallmark Gallery, New York Times, March 1967:


I’d have to use more emojis than a 13-year old girl watching a baby penguin video to adequately love these words.  I love wine, and I love history, but any time I can connect the dots between them . . . bliss!  (Radioman, he gets me.)  😉
