In order to extend our life as long as possible, most of us try to eat healthy, exercise and get plenty of rest. But according to Antonio Docampo García, who died last week at the ripe old age of 107, that’s all a bunch of crap. All you have to do is drink red wine, lots of it.
Docampo’s son says most days his father would drink two bottles of wine at lunch and another two bottles of wine at dinner. “He could drink a liter and a half at once and he never drank water,” said his son, Miguel Docampo López, “when we were both at home we could get through 200 liters of wine a month.” That’s 250 bottles!
Docampo produced about 60,000 liters of wine a year for his winery Bodegas Docampo, and always reserved at least 3,000 of those liters for his personal yearly consumption. And Decampo wasn’t just a daily wine drinker, he was also a big fan of Brandy, taking a shot with his breakfast every morning before beginning work. Now that’s living life!
