The Arts Society: A Brief History of Wine

Holmewood House School

Thu 28th Oct 2021

7.30 pm

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 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 5,000 B.C., the symposia in ancient Greece, the thermopolia of Pompeii, 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.

Lecturer David Wright is a wine retailer, importer and distributor for 30 years. His company was named Merchant of the Year in 1987 - an award judged on independent wine merchants offering a carefully selected range of wine from producers committed to their region, and a high level of service.
