"Het leven is te kort om slechte wijn te drinken."

We already knew that Johan Wolfgang Goethe was an all-rounder. He wrote the famous book 'Faust', but besides being a writer of novels, he was also a playwright, scientist, philosopher, poet, naturalist and statesman. He turned his hand to nothing.

But did you also know that he was the creator of one of the greatest wine statements we know? Of course! He is the creator, creator and father of the quote “Life is too short to drink bad wine.” And since we know that, we are his biggest fan!

The quote is also often associated with Woody Allen's movie "Midnight in Paris". A romantic comedy-drama. In the film, the character Gil - played by Owen Wilson - comes into contact with several well-known writers and artists from the past, including Goethe. The quote is used in the film to emphasize Gil's passion for pursuing his artistic dreams and enjoying life's moments.

It is a call to quality and excellence. It reminds us that we should strive to experience the high things in life, including the wine we drink. It encourages us to opt for good quality wines that delight our taste buds and give us pleasure.

In addition, it is a broader life lesson. It reminds us that life is short, that we should strive to get the most out of it, that we should make conscious choices and spend our precious time on things that bring us joy and value. Like the wine we drink. So let's raise a glass to Goethe, to Woody Allen, to the good life and to enjoying great wines. Cheers!
