Sadly, even as your senior, I can only afford discount wine. Two bottles of this Chablis was only 2,400 yen! Incredibly cheap! Thanks Jupiter!


I'd like to see if Jupiter means 'a lot' in the phrase.

No. This is why the comma in direct address is mandatory. "Jupiter" is the name of the company that he got his wine from. It should read "Thanks, Jupiter!"

Hi, I'm a 3rd Anonymus Emotion: smile Jupiter is also the Roman god of fortune, and in astrology, the Fortuna Major, so should it not be the producer's name, it can simply be thanks addressed to this deity.

On a side note, if we have to mention a main Roman god associated with wine, as far as I know, it is Jupiter again

Nope, It is Bacchus (In Greek, Dionysus).

Bacchanals are drinking parties with lots of wine, women and song.
