Join us on the third Sunday of each month as Andrey takes on a region or style of wine and goes down the proverbial rabbit hole about its historical context and wine making styles.
In February we will be covering the cradle of wine making history and track the evolution of how this beverage has been produced over the last 7,000 years. We will follow a new theory of human migration that ties together the common flood myth of many cultures with the collapse of the ice bridge across the Dardannelles. Around 6200 BC there was a massive increase in the diversity of plant and animal life across Europe and the Near East. Most if not all of these species can be traced back to Central Asia and the region around the modern day Black Sea. This migration also brought a wealth of technical knowledge and increased population to these regions.
The oldest winery ever discovered dates back to that exact time period and was found in Armenia. We will follow that track of history and taste wines from the truly ancient regions for wine making; Georgia, Lebanon, Turkey, Greece, Israel, and Sicily.
