27 Of 365 (366) For 2012

β€œThe most savory grape,

the one that produces the wines with best texture and aroma,

the sweetest and most generous,

doesn’t grow in rich soil but in stony land;

the plant,

with a mother’s obstinacy,

overcomes obstacles to thrust its roots deep into the ground and take advantage of every drop of water.

That,

my grandmother explained to me,

is how flavors are concentrated in the grape.”

[ Isabel AllendePortrait in Sepia ]
