The story of righteous Noah who walked faithfully before God, ends with him drunk from wine, cursing some of his offspring and blessing others. How did such a quality person arrives at so unfortunate a place? The problem was not, Sforno says, that he became drunk.

He should have first planted something else, for this small and seemingly innocent action, had very grave consequences.
