Culture of Wine Experience

This first-of-its-kind experience blends rich history and wine exploration in an afternoon befitting the culturally curious.

Nowhere is the connection between wine and culture more evident than in the history of Persia. Discoveries dating to 5,000 B.C. in the Zagros Mountains of Northern Iran show that winemaking emerged as permanent communities replaced nomadic life and a new age of wine culture began. The history of wine accompanies the very concept of hospitality; inspiring art, poetry, culture, and winecraft for millennia to come.

Journey into the 7,000-year history of wine with Wine Historian, Nina Wemyss. Nina is a contagiously passionate raconteur who has presented to audiences at the Smithsonian Institute, Art Institute of Chicago and many others, she inspires both the wine novice and seasoned connoisseur alike.
