Toasts & Quotes: Socrates on Marriage

“By all means marry. If you get a good wife [spouse], you’ll be happy. If you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher”

~ Socrates (c469 BC–399 BC), Greek Athenian Philosopher and a founder of Western Philosophy  (whose difficult marriage encouraged him to sharpen his debating skills instead of spending time at home!)  A note to those who may choose to use this quote – I recommend toasting with one of my wines, instead of the hemlock.  Otherwise, you’ll be debating Socrates by morning.

I've followed my passion for wine to the four corners of the world in endless pursuit of more wine knowledge and experiences. There are few things in life more enjoyable than experiencing a new culture through its wine and food. Leveraging these experiences, I curate a small portfolio of constantly evolving producers. Like an art gallery's collection, my portfolio consists of hand-crafted wines from artisanal producers that I have personally selected. My goal is to discover boutique wines that taste like they cost more than they do. Come discover your next favorite! www.DaveTheWineMerchant.com
