Wine, Words & Wednesday

I love to read.  For years now, every time I read a book and come across a quote about wine, I’ve been highlighting, clipping or jotting it down.  I’ve accumulated quite a collection.  I keep it on 337 different pieces of scrap paper scattered throughout my house, but it’s a collection nonetheless.  So I thought why not organize my collection?  I’ll call it Wine, Words & Wednesday.

Each Wednesday (or whenever I get to it), I post a wine quote.  Depending on my mood (and which piece of scrap paper I find), it could also be a quote about beer or spirits.  Or a complete non-sequitur.  I’m unpredictable like that.

Here is the cumulative list of Wine, Words & Wednesday quotes.  (I also keep a Wine, Words & Wednesday Pinterest board of all of the quotes, if you prefer to see them visually):
