"First you must take some wine. Can you describe it? The taste?"
She sips. "It's a nice red wine."
"I think you can do better."

"No, no, you're right. Wine is like people. The vine takes in all the influences and the life from around it, it absorbs them and it gets its personality.Smell this."
"Rosemary, Lavendar.Cassis, currant, mint. "
"They're all in the ground here and in the air. Now, taste the wine again. close your eyes."
She takes a slow swallow. "Currant. You can taste that right away. And from the brown bottle. Lavendar? Incredible. And you made this box?"
