It’s Friday & In Vino Veritas

The Fable About Saint Martin, The Monk Who Was Reputed To Have Brought Grapes To France

At first the vine was hidden in the bone of a bird; then after outgrowing the bird, it was hidden in the bone of a lion; and finally, in the bone of a donkey. Later after the vine had grown and wine was made, the monks who drank it showed characteristics of the animals used in it’s transportation. After the first bottle, they sang like birds; after the second bottle, they had courage of a lion; but after the third, they behaved like asses.
