Wine has a strange ability to draw people in. To win their hearts.
I don’t quite understand it, but there’s something special about wine. Wine makes people want to work hard for low pay, just because they love the stuff.
It makes them want to study hard educating themselves.
It causes people to travel the world’s wine regions for no other reason than curiosity and passion.
Wine’s siren call leads people to change career, leaving secure jobs for precarious freelance lifestyles, or working the land and making wine, or opening economically risky wine bars or shops.
I can split my life into two rather distinct periods: before I was hooked by wine, and after.
Is there another drink or food item that has the same magnetic appeal?
