The history of French wine spans a period of at least 2600 years. The Romans did much to spread viticulture that existed earlier. Over the course of history, the French wine industry would influence and driven by commercial interests of the lucrative English market and Dutch traders. Drinking wine brings euphoria. The “Pinot Noir” seems with a glass a day to be very good for the heart and the state of mind. Prior to the French Revolution, the Catholic Church was one of France’s largest vineyard owners-wielding. Bordeau is France’s most famous wine region. The 2020’s average price for a bottle of Chateau Margaux from 1900 is around $14,822.

At the very beginning of the XX century, Pasteur Institute studies show that in 1900 milk was a more exciting and potentially deadly liquid than wine. And luckily appear the pasteurization and sterilization invention.

At the bottom left of this composition, I set up a goose couple. In addition to the dove, the goose is a Celtic Christian symbol for Holy Spirit. Sometimes God’s Spirit hovers comfortingly like the wine. But the Spirit also surprises us and disturbs our plan. Like the unpredictable wine consumption, the Holy Spirit sweeps in unexpected, astonishing directions. A goose is a symbol of loyalty, fearlessness, and courage. When a goose comes into your life, you get a sense of purpose.

I think this painting is great, I raise my glass to life!
