French hospital to offer wine to terminally ill patients


In a little French news,
a hospital in southwest France,
located in Clermont-Ferrand,
plans to open a wine bar specifically for the terminally ill. 

Dr. Virginie Guastella decided it was time 
to bring pleasure to those coming to the end of their lives
through 'medically-supervised wine tasting.' 
The wine bar will include champagne and whisky
and patients will be welcome to invite friends and family. 


Those French are always considering quality of life!
