“Wine is one of the miracles of nature” — Hugh Johnson

“No critic should forget, as he dallies with epithets, sipping his oak-fermented chardonnay or rates one precious bottle half a point behind another, that wine is one of the miracles of nature, and that its 10,000 years of partnership with man has not removed the element of mystery, that independent life that alone among all foods has made men think of it as divine.”

—Hugh Johnson, co-author, The World Atlas of Wine
