Vintage: A History of Wine
Program Number


Series Description

Vintage visits some of the world's most magnificent locales to tell the story of wine from ancient times to the present. Some of the highlights of this tour include: Wine's birth thousands of years ago in the Caucasus mountains, where bare footed Soviet Georgians still tread grapes in the manner of their ancestors; how Magellan circumnavigated the globe on a ship stocked with more sherry than armaments; the German super vintage of 1540 & how one surviving bottle tasted in 1964; the 5 acre plot in France that yields the world's most expensive burgundy; how a wine industry in Japan is flourishing Series release date: 1/1989
