    Please, could you help me?

    What´s the meaning of " I´ve already drunk the wine that Dad told me to lay down for twenty years"

    Thank you.

    Good wine goes on ageing, sometime for many decades. Wine is "laid down" to mature - each bottle is inserted on its side in a rack designed to hold bottles. The narrator has instead drunk the wine immediately while it is still young.
