wine in cupWe hear a lot about the health benefits of wine. But this is the best news evah. (h/t Bob on Sonoma)

A recently-deceased 107-year-old Spanish attributed his long-life to drinking four bottles of wine each day and never drinking water.

Antonio Docampo García, who died last week in Vigo, northwestern Spain, said he only imbibed his own homemade red wine.

Mr Docampo would drink two bottles of red wine with his lunch and another two with dinner.

The wine industry really needs to have this guy’s biography written and publicized.

But I do think he was missing an opportunity. Why not breakfast wine? If you’re intent on drinking four bottles of wine per day you might as well start early.

Again, I think this is a great idea for the wine industry. So what wines would you recommend for breakfast? Does anyone have any ideas?
