Galileo Figaro Magnifico

For those of you who think “Galileo” is only a catchy phrase from a Queen classic, read this ….

“Wine is sunlight, held together by water.”
― Galileo Galilei

Clearly this man, Italian physicist, mathematician, engineer, astronomer, and philosopher, knew that there was more to life than heliocentrism.

This week I celebrated Galileo’s wise words with a delicious $12 bottle of wine from Chile.  Magnifico.
