Women and wine go together like melted chocolate and strawberries. It’s one of the most sacred, functional relationships known to man.

Who needs a boyfriend when you can curl up on the couch with a big old glass of vino? You don’t have to worry about another person’s needs, wishes or dreams — with a glass of wine by your side, everything will be OK.

There are a lot of problems in this big, scary world, but an excess of wine could never be one of them. When it comes to wine, more is better. Always.
