- drunken folks speak truth, one tells the truth under the influence of alcohol
From Latin: in ("in") + vīnō, the ablative singular of vīnum ("wine") + vēritās ("truth"). Thus, “in wine there is truth”. First attested, as volgoque veritas iam attributa vino est, in the Naturalis Historia (XIV, 141) of Pliny the Elder. (Wiktionary)
