A Brief Story of Wine David Wright Monday 16 December 2019

Please note that this lecture was previously scheduled for 2 December.    Please also be aware that it starts at 3.00pm

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. Drawings, paintings, engravings, buildings, pottery and wine labels themselves all contribute to the story.  

Lecturer:    David Wright has been a wine retailer, importer and distributor for 30 years.  He has publicly presented tastings and talks on wine to trade and private audiences.
