Is it Time to Start Drinking All Your Wine?


When is the right time to drink one of your precious bottles of Burgundy, Bordeaux, Super Tuscan, Napa Cab, or other wine that you hold dear in your cellar?  I pondered that question with the start of the New Year and wondered when the world will end by apocalypse or other disasters.  The answer, of course, comes from Wikipedia and their List of Dates Predicted for Apocalyptic events. I extracted the next two predictions for you and your precious wine collection.

Date (CE) Claimant(s) Description Ref.
9 Jun 2019 Ronald Weinland Weinland, who previously predicted the world would end in 2011, 2012, and then 2013, predicted in 2018 that Jesus will return on June 9, 2019. He has since expressed some doubts regarding his own prediction. [185]
2020 Jeane Dixon Dixon predicted that Armageddon would take place in 2020. She previously predicted the world would end on February 4, 1962. [187]

June 9, 2019 is coming up quickly so you may want to start sipping.  Otherwise, if you are more pessimistic, you can hold out to 2020, or longer.  Enjoy your wine whenever the opportunity arises, because you never know when your last sip will be your last sip!
