Renewing oneself, maturing
Time decides the heaviness of the shoots, turns the plants green, makes sprouts grow and fills up the grapes until the long-awaited harvest. Time changes those who wonder what the future will hold, matures those who can wait, renews itself in an already adult glass of sparkling wine.
