When I was in Italy during my Army assignment, I learned early on that wine was a very ordinary and standard drink of the masses. One family who invited me to dinner didn't understand that I can't drink any form of wine. I am a tee totaler not only wine but beer and hard liquor. I tried to develop a taste for wine because there are definite health benefits to drinking it in moderation. My pallet simply rejects it. Even young children tip a small glass at dinner. I was amazed but assured that moderation was the operating word.
