Martin Luther said, “Beer is made by men, wine by God.” This is probably true as you don’t really see many people drinking wine publicly in the street as you see people drinking beer everywhere. Drinking wine is a ritual. You want it to be special. And you usually drink it with someone special. Unless you are having a really bad day and you are drinking alone while searching for free adult games to spend your alone time in a fun way.
But even when you drink it alone there is still a magic feeling to it. You drink wine when you want to celebrate something like an anniversary or promotion, when you go out on a date or maybe just because you feel like it. But usually, there is some background why you are drinking this heavenly liquid. You are happy and excited and you want to keep feeling that way or if you are trying to drown your sorrows, with wine you are doing it elegantly. No one will call you a drunkard if you drink wine. Wine is divine.
There are also many therapeutic effects besides the emotional ones. Antioxidants present in red wine are famously good for vascular health in general and they help with blood flow and circulation. This is one of the reasons you choose wine if you are wishing for your date to be successful. Healthy blood flow contributes to sexual arousal. You can thank histamine, tyramine, spermidine and serotonin for getting activated after just a few sips. Moderate quantity will increase your libido just enough to feel confident and appealing. In the worst-case scenario, if your date doesn’t share the same vibes you are feeling, you can always count on online games for your devices. This combo will surely help you get rid of any tension and it will make your life feel lighter.
If you want to merge an exotic adventure with wine drinking, there is an underwater wine cellar paradise on the bottom of the Adriatic sea waiting for you to get your hands on the bottle of your choice. It is located in Croatia, on the Peljesac peninsula. They make premium wines, bottle them and preserve them in amphoras they put on the sea bottom. You scuba dive in full equipment and search for your own amphora somewhere on the sunken boat. That’s one way of having a hell of a Mediterranean date!
You may have heard about buchette del vino, aka wine windows that are getting popular once again in Florence, Italy. These are holes in fences big enough for a bottle, used to safely sell bottles of wine to thirsty passengers, with human contact reduced to the minimum. They were first introduced in the XVI century when Cosimo I de’ Medici (Grand Duke of Tuscany) decreed that people could sell wine from their cellars and avoid taxes by direct sale, evading any middlemen. The windows continued their use later in the 1630s when northern Italy faced the plague outbreak.
As 2020 has affected all of us in different ways, many of us reached for wine consolation and luckily some clever people thought of reinventing the use for these windows and safely hand us the very needed fluid solace. You can also get ice cream, coffee or Aperol Spritz from these windows. But nothing beats the original!
Even Alexander Fleming acknowledged that penicillin cures, but wine makes people happy. And cheers to that!
