Sommelier Arnie Millan will conduct a fun and fascinating class on the story of Ancient Wine, just in time for the holidays.
Our story begins during the Neolithic era. We will explore the role of wine in ancient societies, such as classical Greece and Rome, and wine’s role in religion, ending with the dawn of the Christian monastic orders. In a sense, the history of wines is nothing less than the history of civilization.
We will taste 8 wines whose grapes have ancient pedigrees.
