Wisdom in the Wine: Making, Using (and Abusing) It in the Biblical World
Whether you're an enologist or just like a good glass, this session will introduce you to your counterparts of millennia past. We'll explore how wines were made in ancient Egypt, Israel and elsewhere. With Purim soon following, we'll visit ancient Persia where the ancestors of modern wine grapes were first cultivated. We'll also drop by some drinking parties from Egypt to Classical Greece. Finally, we'll look at what the ancients had to say about enjoying wine, both enough and too much!
This special session will include a wine tasting featuring some the region's finest vintages.
