Galileo’s Thoughts on Wine

“Wine is sunlight held together by water.”

This morning the sun is streaming through our windows and, preparing for the hot day ahead, we just went out to water our strawberries and hanging plants. I was reminded of this quote by the Italian scientist and philosopher who was born in Pisa in 1564. Perhaps with Galileo’s knowledge of astronomy and with the improvements he made to the telescope, he was apt to link wine with the solar system. A toast to the weekend!
