Event description
Explore the fascinating story of wine and how it has been part of our global society for over 7,000 years

About this event

Its story tells us 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. The lecture dips into each culture and century and picks out the evidence or role wine has played.

After the lecture, experience the chance to taste and discuss Cote Du Danube Viognier 2020, Forgeron Dubois Syrah Rose 2019, Languedoc, France and Terra d’Alter Red, Alentejo, Portugal.

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.

He lectures for The Arts Society and has, in collaboration with the head office, started a wine website for members, with a percentage of revenue returned to The Arts Society for investment in charitable activities.

Over the years, he has publicly presented tastings and talks on wine to trade and private audiences. Personally, he considers wine an essential component to a contented life.
