The Ancient Wines Club
As professional archaeologists, educators, and wine professionals, we are dedicated to exploring the inspiring intersections of wine, history, mythology, and archaeology in the ancient world.
To share this passion, we present and produce the Ancient Wines Club, a bi-monthly wine club that promotes and explores the world of delicious, interesting, and historically-connected wines -- exactly the types that we regularly feature in our wine seminar events.
The Ancient Wines Club is delivered every other month and features 3 wines with direct connections to the history, archaeology, mythology, and geography of the ancient Mediterranean world, along with detailed tasting and historical notes.
