But the secret elixir wasn't just any wine -- Docampo drank wine he produced in the region of Ribadavia, described as "natural, without preservatives, sulfites or other added chemicals."
Along with the healthy wine habit (as in extensive), Docampo also drank a shot of liquor in the morning with breakfast. He fought in the Spanish Civil War, and didn't take any antibiotics until he caught pneumonia at the age of 103. The following year, he came down with pneumonia again and nearly died, only for nurses to discover he hadn't been taking the pills prescribed to him. His son subsequently took him home and crushed up the medication in Docampo's food, and he later returned to health, described as a "phenomenon" until he hit 105.
