Pope Francis: A Wedding Without Wine Is 'an Embarrassment'

Jul 8, 2016

In a previous post I showed that Vatican City came out on top when it came to wine consumption (per capita), but the Holy See is making the news again, with the latest statements from Pope Francis.

"... wine expresses the abundance of the banquet and the joy of the feast.”

“Imagine finishing the wedding feast drinking tea, - It would be an embarrassment!"

“How is it possible to celebrate the wedding and have a party if you lack what the prophets indicated was a typical element of the messianic banquet?”

I may not be Catholic, but these are sentiments I can get behind!

Urban Vintner has been  a supplier of wine for over a dozen weddings in 2016, with 2017 bookings already rolling in. With the updating of liquor laws to allow Craft Wine to be served at licensed events, custom wine (and wine bottles) have become a hot commodity.

I posted all the details of making wine for a wedding (or any event) in a previous post (LINK), but am always more than happy to discuss any and all of your wine needs, no matter the occasion.
