The Cork Overfloweth

Anyone who has uncorked a bottle of wine in the last decade knows that many wineries now enjoy printing some wit or wisdom on their cork. Usually the text is short and sweet but yesterday we opened a bottle of Spanish red and found an entire poem…in two languages none the less!

In Spanish: “Dicen que el brindis se creó para completar el ciclo de los cinco sentidos – vista, olfato, gusto, tacto y el sonido de las copas.”

In English: “It is said that a toast is made to complete the cycle of the five senses – sight, smell, taste, touch and the sound of wine glasses.”

It isn’t often that you find enough printing on your wine cork to exceed the Twitter character limit!
