Of leather shoes and grape-stained feet

Posted by Jeff Markowitz on Tuesday, January 11, 2011
The National Geographic Society has just announced the discovery of a six thousand year old winery in an Armenian cave.  It is not the earliest archaeological evidence of wine, but it is the earliest, most complete example of the production of wine.  And it just happens to be located in the same area where the earliest leather shoe was previously unearthed.   

There is a bon mot buried somewhere in that archaeological dig, to be found in the juxtaposition of leather shoe and grape-stained foot, but I am off my blogging game, and the bon mot eludes me.
