Wine lovers and history buffs alike will not want to miss this massive exhibit focused on wine and all its uses throughout human history, from communion to drunkenness, sacrificial symbol to food pairing. The exhibition uses relics, showpieces, sculptures, frescoes, mosaics, multimedia and video installations to recount the history of the grapevine and wine and its influence on cultures ancient and modern, from the Etruscans, Phoenicians and ancient Romans to the modern aspiring sommelier. The show will invite visitors to reflect on and learn about the evolution of viticulture, cultivation techniques, the cultural value of the grape and its ‘juice' and much more.
