“Everything happens for a Riesling”

“Everything happens for a Riesling” is a wine saying that has been printed on many images. “Riesling” might sound a bit like “reason.”
 
“‘Everything happens for a Riesling.’  #MisheardCliches” was posted on Twitter by Jane Espenson on January 11, 2010. The saying became very popular by 2014.
   
 
Wikipedia: Riesling
Riesling is a white grape variety which originated in the Rhine region. Riesling is an aromatic grape variety displaying flowery, almost perfumed, aromas as well as high acidity. It is used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet, and sparkling white wines. Riesling wines are usually varietally pure and are seldom oaked.

26. “Everything happens for a riesling, right?” — Unknown
 
24 August 2018, Morning Edition (NPR), “Portland Artist Mike Schneider Makes His Own Boyfriend”:
NOEL KING: Good morning. I’m Noel King. A few months ago, Mike Schneider, an artist in Portland, Ore., took maybe not the art world but at least Instagram by storm. Sick of bad relationships, he made a boyfriend out of empty wine boxes. He called the box-boyfriend Franz and posted pictures of them shopping and making dinner. Now, he says, he and his wine boxes are engaged. As Schneider put it, everything happens for a riesling.
