As the best wine store in New York City, we're excited when anyone encourages people to drink more wine. That's especially true when it's a famous actress and wine pro like Drew Barrymore so we were happy to see her recent interview with Vogue magazine.
You heard us right. In addition to starring in hits like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Scream and now the Netflix comedy Santa Clarita Diet, Barrymore got into the California wine business in 2010. Here's some of what she had to say about the benefits of drinking wine:
Wine is education: We agree completely. The more wine you sample, the more you learn. You find out more about different cultures, places, and times. You bond with others who enjoy tasting and talking about wine.
Wine is the best gift: You're making people happy when you give them a bottle of wine. You don't have to worry about knowing their shoe size or whether they've already read the latest best seller. Plus, they might even share the bottle with you.
Wine is not intimidating: Barrymore says she no longer feels stressed when friends ask her to taste the wine at dinner. She just swirls, smells, and tastes, and you don't even have to be a professional actress to do that.
Unlike Barrymore, we've never been chosen for the cover of People magazine's 100 Most Beautiful people, but Vino Fine Wine and Spirits has been consistently voted one of New York’s top-rated wine stores, over the past 10 years. Contact us for a large selection of world class wines and spirits.
