Hopefully because it tastes good, right? Why else would we bother? Think about it for a minute, what other drink, alcoholic or not, delivers quite so much pleasure as a good glass of wine?

No other beverage I know of puts it all together quite like wine. What other liquid smells as good, and tastes quite so delicious? Isn’t that what really separates wine from all of the other world’s great beverages? In addition, is there really anything else that complements food quite like a good bottle of wine?
