World's Oldest Wine Male
Antonio Todde who made it into the Guinness Book
of Records when he turned 112 last year as the world's oldest man,
has just died. He always maintained that the secret of his longevity
was a daily glass of red wine...
Todde was born in a tiny Sardinian mountain village
in 1889, the same year work on the Eiffel Tower was completed. Todde
all his life lived in the same house with his wife of 78 years, Maria-Antonia
and scarcely left the village.
His life-promoting tipple was a glass of locally
produced red wine, made by his grandson on the same rocky hills around
the Sardinian town of Nuoro where, as a shepherd, he spent almost
all his life.
