Viticulture

Viticulture

In a nut shell, here is a less than 300 word summary of what I am studying. The scientific term for grape growing is Viticulture. The term for winemaking is Enology. Both Viticulture and Enology have been around since the cavemen or in better terms “The Bronze Age”. Even Wikipedia agrees, there is evidence of these practices from the Neolithic period. Winemaking has come a long, long way. But you can’t say it’s not cool that through hunters and gatherers, the Han empire, medieval times, vikings and so on, everyone drank wine.

Cheers to that the next time you are polishing off a bottle of vino in your living room. You’re a part of history. Give yourself a pat on the back.
