It is the symbol of celebration. But this does not mean that wine should only be enjoyed during blissful times. In defeat, there is another form of celebration – celebration of character, of will and persistence.
All reasons worth a tried and true celebratory drink. A toast to good times is easy during celebrations. A toast to life during downfalls may not be as such but is certainly just as necessary. Here’s to a bit of failure every now and then. And a bit of humility towards life.
If you want to celebrate Italian style, forgo the champagne for a quality sparkling wine.
