On the anedoctical side, my grand-mother died at age 104, and for the last
forty or fifty years or her life she did not drink any water. Red wine at
meals, essentially, plus an occasional tea at 5 pm, say, once or twice a
week. Very little other liquids, but those contained in food.

Another individual who spent his entire life in Sardinia and died at 105+
reportedly had the same lifestyle .
