wine o from the Spirit) expresses its joy, we Christians do it by singing
hymns of thankfulness. >>

I didn't check it since reading your post, but my recollection is that John
the Baptist refrained from anything connected with the grape due to the fact
that he was a Nazirite. Are you thinking of something else?
