Drinking in the Past: Wine and Astrology from the Middle Ages to Today


Museum Lecture Hall

This is a past event

Throughout the Middle Ages in Europe, the movements of the moon, sun, stars, and planets were believed to affect physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Join curator Bryan C. Keene and sommelier Mark Mark Keene in savoring the relationship between the history of wine and astrology in this tasting program that pairs biodynamically produced wines with medieval horoscopes. Wine tasting enjoyed on the outdoor terrace follows the talk. This program complements the exhibition The Wondrous Cosmos in Medieval Manuscripts.

Tickets $65 (includes appetizers); ages 21 and over. Complimentary parking.
