“Carpe Vino” (seize the wine)

"Carpe Vino” (seize the wine) is a modern Latin saying, after the popular Latin saying “carpe diem” (seize the day). “Carpe Vino” has been cited in print since at least 1997 and 1999.

“Carpe Vino (Seize the Wine)” has been printed on a wall plaque.


Wikipedia: Carpe diem
Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism usually translated “seize the day”, taken from a poem in the Odes (book 1, number 11) in 23 BC by the poet Horace.

Other Latin
Nunc est bibendum ("now is the time to drink") from the Odes of Horace: “Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus” ("Now is the time to drink, now the time to dance footloose upon the earth").

Incidentally, as a motto for this group, how about ‘Carpe Vino’?

I like wine. Wait, that’s an understatement… I LOVE wine. A lot. More than most people. I drink it, I cook with it, I enjoy it.
