I come across these once in a while, and just wanted to share and thereby show how sacred wine is, and how long it’s been around. It’s believed that the first winemaker was a woman, some 5000-7000 years ago, along the Caspian Sea, in Iran. That would make her a Zoroastrian, a religion that predates Islam in that area:

"Go, eat your bread in gladness and drink your wine in joy, for your action was long ago approved by God…Whatever it is in your power to do, do it with all your might…"

— Ecclesiastes
