Ben Franklin Wine Quotes

Benjamin Franklin was a key member of the American Revolution and was a true multi-talented individual. He definitely loved wine, and he talked about wine frequently! He wrote many articles, he did scientific experiments and was a great politician. He was a printer and created the Poor Richard's Almanac. He lived from 1706 to 1790. Let me know if there are any other Franklin quotes about wine that I missed!

Long version:

Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy."
-- Benjamin Franklin
