Humankind has been in love with wine for a long time – in fact, it seems as far back as scrolls could roll, poets, philosophers and the common man sang praise for the majestic grape. Okay, so, we aren’t poets but we certainly agree that a good wine brings the poet out in all of us. 

So, who do you think says it best when it comes to wine quotes that express your love for wine? We rounded-up some of our favorites wine-themed quotes from oenophiles, poets, cooks and others over time. Even Benjamin Franklin — we like how he thinks.
