The History and Mystery of Wine (VIDEO)
Dr. Engel traces the fascinating ancient origins of wine and continues the story through the wide and wild popularity of wine today. Special attention is given to the competing drinks which almost destroyed wine's popularity in the 17th-century and to the unexpected consequences of the Muslim prohibition of all spirits beginning in 700 A.D. Using anecdotes, analysis, and large doses of humor, Professor Engel brings to life the intoxicating journey of wine from the Ancient Egyptians through the invention of champagne, and even explores America's small but growing influence on recent wine culture.
