“Wine is divine”

"Wine is divine” is a wine saying that has been printed on many images. “Wine is divine” was printed in The New Northwest (Portland, OR) on July 31, 1874.

“Candy is dandy, but wine is divine” is an extension of the saying.


31 July 1874, The New Northwest (Portland, OR), pg. 3, col. 6:
... and if I shall succeed in saving even one from the delusion that “wine is divine,” the snare so skillfully set for the unwary, I shall feel amply repaid for my labors.
