Herbal Additions to Your Wine? Recommendation for the Pope: Coca Wine

Bex Note:  TIMELY SUGGESTION! And I'd like to try some too!  Dear Pope, will you share? 

While I relish the opportunity to experiment making wines and adding other healthy elements such as alternative medicinal plant herbs, I wonder what the US Market reaction and opportunities are for such wine beverages that would need to be labeled either “Table Wine With Natural Flavors" or "Grape Wine With Natural Flavors?”

What natural, healthy additions would you like to try in your wines? How much are you willing to pay for such a drink? Have you tried any? Let me know when you find one!

Bolivia's Morales Recommends Coca Wine to Next Pope

VIENNA - Bolivian President Evo Morales suggested on Monday that the next Pope try wine made from coca leaf, something Bolivians have chewed for centuries and can also be used to make cocaine.

Morales, himself a former coca leaf farmer who has fought to decriminalize its use by indigenous people, sang its praises at a meeting of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs and said the crop would be part of his country's drive to industrialize.

He recalled how Frenchman Angelo Mariani had won a Vatican gold medal in the 19th century for his coca wine, adding: "I really hope the new Pope, who should be named soon, will also use the wine like Mariani."

Roman Catholic cardinals have assembled in Rome to elect a new Pope in secret voting starting on Tuesday, following the abdication of Pope Benedict XVI last month.

Mariani's tonic wine was prized in his time for its perceived benefits for health and vitality, and was enjoyed by public figures ranging from Queen Victoria to Thomas Edison.

In the 19th century, popes Pius X and Leo XIII enjoyed drinking Mariani wine from coca leaves, which Bolivians traditionally chew as a mild stimulant that reduces hunger and altitude sickness.

Bolivia said in January it had been re-admitted to the UN anti-narcotics convention after persuading members to recognize the right of its indigenous people to chew the leaf. Morales thanked the conference for that gesture on Monday.

Coca leaf was declared an illegal narcotic in the 1961 UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, along with substances including cocaine, heroin, opium and morphine.

Bolivia is the biggest cocaine producer after fellow South American states Peru and Colombia. But Morales said the coca plant offers health benefits and has many legitimate uses.

"We have mate (tea), we have wine, we have toothpaste, we have many products," he said. "We even use coca in wedding cakes. It is very fashionable now." —  Reuters

When a person is killed in an accident because of the negligence of another person on road, his family has the complete right to hold the negligent person accountable for the death. A lawsuit hired on behalf of a deceased loved one is known as wrongful death attorney.

Christianity is a religion based upon the teachings and miracles of Jesus. Jesus is the Christ. The word "christ" means anointed one. Christ is not Jesus' last name. Jesus is the anointed one from God the Father who came to this world, fulfilled the Old Testament laws and prophecies, died on the cross, and rose from the dead physically. He performed many miracles which were recorded in the Gospels by the eyewitnesses. He is divine in nature as well as human. Thus, He has two natures and is worthy of worship and prayer.
