Wine has been part of our global society for over 7,000 years and the story tells of its origin and appearance in all societies across the Mediterranean and through Europe. There is rich evidence of the role that wine has played in these societies and how it became an important component of faith, well-being and festivity. From the kwevris of Georgia in 5000BC, the symposia in ancient Greece, the thermopolia of Pompeii and the hospices of Europe to the dining tables of fine society, wine has been ever present. Drawings, paintings, engravings, buildings, pottery and wine labels themselves all contribute to the story.

In conjunction with Majestic Wines who will hold a short wine tasting from 5.45pm prior to the lecture start.
