Wine and art

By substituting one word, the ancient saying in vino veritas (‘in wine there is truth’) can just as well be applied to art. If the original saying means that it’s more difficult to speak falsehoods while intoxicated, in the case of art it might mean that a genuine work of art is like a diamond in the rough – the divine spark in art simply does not allow the presence of lies. Perhaps this is why, as some prominent winemakers have noticed, the interaction of these two muses often turns out to be very fruitful. On the part of both wine and art. Anothertravelguide.com recommends five hedonistic and inspiring destinations in southern France and Tuscany where two passions coexist: wine and contemporary art.
