We love wine, and we love quotes about wine. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve run a couple of posts that featured wine quotes, the first by our blog editor Janice Cable and the second by Senior Wine Portfolio Manager Frank Sansotta. Yesterday, we posted on Facebook and Twitter asking our fans what their favorite wine quotes were, and we promised to feature the ones we liked best and pick a winner from the bunch. Without further ado, here are the top three quotes submitted by you, our readers:

1)     Stephanie Miskew “I only drink Champagne on two occasions, when I am in love and when I am not.” —Coco Chanel

2)     Oscar Castellon “In victory we deserve it, in defeat we need it.”  —Winston Churchill

3)   Wendy Lyn “Order tap water. Why spend money on bottled water when you can apply the difference towards a better bottle of wine?”  —Danny Meyer

And as much as we love all of these words of wine wisdom, we know there can only be one winner:  Oscar Castellon, for offering a timeless gem of brevity by Winston Churchill, who was speaking about Champagne, his elixir of choice.

Thanks one and all for responding to our query! We love to hear from you, and if you’d like to add to the conversation, please comment below. We’d hate to think that your favorite quote about wine didn’t get its due—feel free to share it here and now.

    It’s just a Spanish saying…don’t think it is attributed to any single individual.
