In the evening Frodo gave his farewell feast; it was quite small, just a dinner for himself and his four helpers; but he was troubled and fell in no mood for it. The thought that he would so soon have to part with his young friends weighed on his heart. He wondered how he would break it to them.
The four younger hobbits were, however, in high spirits, and the party soon became very cheerful in spite of Gandalf’s absence. The dining room was bare except for a table and chairs, but the food was good, and there was good wine; Frodo’s wine had not been included in the sale to the Sackville-Bagginses.
“Whatever happens to the rest of my stuff, when the S.-B.s get their claws on it, at any rate I have found a good home for this!” said Frodo, as he drained his glass. It was the last drop of Old Winyards.
J. R. R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring. Book I, Chapter III: Three is Company
The prompt for Day 18 was "bottle" and the bottles of Old Winyards was one of the first things that came to my mind.
By the way, I wanted to draw all four of Frodo's companions and this would be a nice opportunity to draw Fatty Bolger and Folco Boffin, but I just couldn't find a way for the composition to work, while keeping it focused on Frodo with the wine. So I'll have to draw them some other time.
