Pondero Winchester – The Origins of Wine: A potted 8,000-year history

Wine is something many of us enjoy on a weekly basis, but it’s been a long road from the early days of foot-treading to where we are today. In this wanderlust-fuelled session, we’ll discover how wine has weaved its way through thousands of years of history, embedding itself in every culture and empire along the way. Looking beyond tasting notes and ‘goes well with chicken’ there are stories and traditions that have shaped the wines in our glasses today.  Discover and appreciate wine for the cultural treasure it is.
