    1. They are, though my whole family insists that they are blueberries:-) in which case we're talking about blueberry wine! I take no offense to that...never had any, but willing to try!:-)

  7. A very known, to these days, ancient Greek saying: «Οίνος ευφραίνει καρδίαν», which means, wine rejoices the heart. We really believe in the ‘magic’ of wine.
    Absolutely wonderful painting Minnemie!!!
    Warm regards.
