What is it that a Vintner buys that’s worth one third of that which they sell

WINE

Straw coloured wine
Strawberry coloured wine
Wine - Bulls blood filled Goblet
Overflowing Lazily poured
Challis overfilled
Brimming with redemption
Last supper
Broken lover wine
I have drank them all

Lascivious velvet wine
Autumn tied
Dew filled
Talking like a sophist
Type of wine.
From recipe found in
Christ’s very own Sepulchre
(not to be taken with water)
Wooden Goblet wine

Wine with a Caiphus Kiss
Inducing me to see
The curve of your hips magnified in
The crystal glass
And feel again
Youthful desire
Only to bring false promise
As I choose another glass
And so betray you
TYPE OF WINE

Interesting topic - just written a poem myself with wine in it, though nothing quite so grandiose as this one. Eloquent wording - enjoyed the wit enveloped within. HG: -) xx

Variety is the spice of life and there are so many wines to choose from.In wine there is the truth --such a magically potent drink....a ten from me...as I pour a glass and toast you.
