It's virtues are extolled in the verses of Genesis, it was the drink of choice in Ancient Greece, and archeological evidence suggests that by the time of Dionysius, it had already been a favored refreshment for millennia.
From ancient times to the present day, from its (likely) accidental discovery to modern, high-tech wineries, A BRIEF HISTORY OF WINE is an oenophile's and historian's delight, chronicling the rich past and heritage of mankind's favorite beverage. Our cameras travel the world to visit the great wine-growing regions, including the famed appellations of France and the sunburned vineyards down under in Australia. Experts reveal the many fascinating tales surrounding our love of the grape, including Napoleon's home among the vines of Champagne, Jefferson's six attempts to establish a Virginia winery and the American insect that nearly destroyed the global wine industry!
Pour a fresh glass and prepare to see the world of wine in a whole new light.
