Wine is Life

by Sarah
(Portland, OR)

My friend, a professional sommelier, wants a phrase that means "Wine is life."

I've come up with these but want to check on their accuracy and elegance:

"Vino est vita" or "vino est vitae essentia."

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Sarah,

Your first phrase is almost perfect, but vino is Italian.

Try this: Vinum est vita.

Thanks for asking a Latin teacher,
