107 Year Old Man Drank 4 Bottles Of Wine A Day!

This man is my new HERO!!! RIP at 107 years old...HELL YES!

Spanish man lives to 107 drinking homemade red wine instead of water

They say a glass of red wine a day helps keep the doctor away. But what about several bottles per day? That's what Antonio Docampo Garcia, the recently deceased curator of the Bodegas Docampo vineyard and winery in Spain, drank every single day up until his passing at the ripe old age of 107.

The key to Docampo's long, healthy and jovial life appears to have been freshly fermented wine, which he drank in lieu of water at nearly every meal. His familiar successors lovingly recall how the pudgy-cheeked caretaker of the Ribadavia-based estate was almost never without his favorite glass of vino at every occasion.

"He could drink a litre and a half all at once," Docampo's son Manuel told local newspaper La Voz de Galicia. "When we were both at home we could get through 200 litres of wine a month. He never drank water."

The Spanish Civil War veteran wasn't a drunkard, though. He drank his wine not only for health reasons but also because he just loved wine. His family says he typically drank the equivalent of about two bottles of wine with lunch, and another two bottles with dinner – and he did this practically every day!

The Docampo Garcia vineyard, which Docampo himself founded, produces wines for sale to the general public. But with each batch produced, Docampo would hold back a portion for himself, which he seemed to use as a type of longevity elixir.

"If he produced 60,000 litres a year he would keep 3,000 litres for himself," Docampo's nephew Jeronimo added to La Voz de Galicia.

Docampo also prided himself on taking a shot of brandy with breakfast, another part of his unconventional health regimen that allowed him to avoid having to take pharmaceutical medications. Up until the age of 103, Docampo maintained excellent health with minimal or no illness, a quality of life that he and his family attribute to his beverage choices.

That's awesome! :chuckle:  I can see drunkeness being a problem but I think when you drink that much for so long, you just don't get drunk anymore. Amazing his liver didn't do him in a 70 though.
