Another favorite Italian wine proverb…

The other day, we posted about one of our favorite Italian “wine proverbs.” Here’s the link.

And here’s another one:

Non si può avere la botte piena e la moglie ubriaca.

Literally, it means: you can’t have a cask full [of wine] and a drunk wife [at the same time].

It’s the way Italians say, you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.

Stay tuned for more Italian wine proverbs in coming weeks! And buon weekend! Have a great weekend!
