Shakespeare William

Portrait of William Shakespeare The English dramatist William Shakespeare (1564-1616) created numerous comedies, plays, tragedies and fairy tale plays. Talked wines from Spain and the Canary Islands were considered at the time bag designated and exported in large quantities to England. In his work "What You Want", Sir Toby Belch calls for "a cup of canary" (a canary bag from the Canary Islands). But even Shakespeare himself seems to have loved this wine, because he writes: "Wonderful wine, which melts on the tongue and smells in the blood, and faster than you ask yourself: What is that?" Quote On wine in general: "Wine makes the brain sensible, fast and inventive - full of animated, fiery and delightful images" . And another: "Who drinks wine, sleeps well. He who sleeps well does not sin. He who does not sin will be saved. So if you drink wine well, you will be happy " .

He was an absolute fan of Sherry and approved a substantial amount of money every day at his hangout "Bear Head Tavern" in London. Again and again, this wine was mentioned by name in scenes of his works, such as in Richard III, Henry VI, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV Shakespeare's character was in this context Falstaff indirectly at the naming for the sparkling wine involved. In the drama Henry VI. Shakespeare also mentions a wine called "King of Portuguese White Wines" called "Charneco" from the area at that time Bucelas He also praised himself privately.

In his drama Macbeth, Shakspeare describes the problem of having too much alcohol in connection with sex, which ends in the worst case with a drama: The trunk is a great carrier of three things - red noses, sleep and urine. He promotes and suppresses boasting at the same time: he promotes desire and weakens the action.
