Wine making is a craft. Wine can only be created through a true labor of love. The wine maker respects the wine. He must nurture the elements in order to create a fine, timeless wine. He cultivates, struggles, loves and takes delight in the many phases of wine making and he must complete the entire long process with absolute focus. A marriage is much like wine making. It is also a process. It too requires love, hard work, nurturing, cultivating, focus and respect. It too will have times of struggle and times of delight. It too is timeless.
Wines can be dark or light. They can be sweet or dry. No two wines are alike, as no two people are alike. Just as the two wines are made from different grapes, gathered from different places and have very distinct and different tastes so is this couple who chooses now to combine their two lives into one life journey.
Let the wines, red and white, represent the couples individuality. Let the couple take up a bottle and one pour from the red into the glass and the other pour from the white into the same glass creating a rose wine. Rose, symbolic for love. Now let the couple each drink of the rose wine in a toast of their newly combined existence and timeless, classic love.
