organic wine

why a wine is named after a donkey...

Why a wine was named after a donkey

and that a singing one of the kind

Many answers or none may come to mind

but the reason is in history to find.

Once upon a time

in the outskirts of a town in Spain

one that from a river took its name

the donkeys were forced to thresh the grain.

They worked and worked till they were sore

but after having finished their chore

the peasants had something nice in store.

In a landscape covered with corn and vine

there was a plot that fitted fine

for the donkeys to resign.

The donkeys would lie down 

or just walk around

whilst making their very particular sound.

This was referred to by a peasant

however incessant

to be so very pleasant.

While the donkeys were braying

it goes without saying

that the wives of the peasants were praying

for their husbands to return by dine

and that in a sober state of mind

without having bested their intake of wine


This little story reveals the origin of the name

in the honor of a donkey it has its fame

and even though it was not the aim

after a glass or two of this fine wine

one may find

that  the hurdles of pronunciation decline
