Great wine lovers throughout history have set a very high standard for the rest of us. Collectors (and imbibers) of the past have made wine more accessible to us all.

The cunning warrior Odysseus was a famous lover of wine. Wine didn’t just keep him and his men going at the long journey at sea; it actually saved his life. He had brought some wine along with him (of course) when he camped out on the cyclops’ island. When he found himself trapped in a cave, he came up with a plan to escape. You see, Odysseus’ wine was too good for the cyclops to pass up. After drinking deep of the good Greek wine, the cyclops was too slow to stop Odysseus from tricking him and making a daring escape. Afterwards, the men celebrated with what else? More wine!
