The English word “wine” comes from the Proto-Germanic*winam, an early borrowing from the Latin vinum, “wine” or “(grape) vine”, itself derived from the Proto-Indo-Europeanstem *win-o- (cf. Armenian: գինի , gini; Ancient Greek: οἶνοςoinos; Aeolic Greek: ϝοῖνος woinos; Hittite: wiyana; Lycian:oino).

Memorize the above fact and you may impress Alex Trebek, but if you really want to impress your date or friends than you should have taken them to the 12th annual Great Grapes Wine & Food Festival in Cary, NC

Per their website :

As you enter…..take your souvenir tasting glass and stroll from tent to tent and table to table, tasting and sampling the rich heritage of North Carolina vines. As you sip and savor the afternoon, relax in the beautiful green setting of the Town of Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre.

My family and I spent the entire afternoon enjoying the above and more. A fun loving crowd and unlimited sample pours = great time. Missed it this yr ? Don’t fret. They are also having similar events in Maryland and Virginia during the late spring and early summer. Charlotte also on Oct 3. Cheers !
