Wisdom In the Wine: An Adult Purim Experience

Saturday, February 24, 2018, 7:30 - 10:30 p.m., Social Hall

The Adult Education Committee proudly presents this evening of Biblical wine history, paired with a wine tasting/dessert social gathering.  Make your reservation below by Thursday, February 22!

Whether you're an enologist or just like a good glass, this session will introduce you to your counterparts of millennia past.  Explore how wines were made in ancient Egypt, Israel and elsewhere.  With Purim soon following, journey to ancient Persia where the ancestors of modern wine grapes were first cultivated.  Then, drop by some drinking parties from Egypt to Classical Greece, and look at what the ancients had to say about enjoying wine, both enough and too much!  Expert Jehon Grist, Ph.D. of Lehrhaus Judaica will present.

Next, bring Shabbat to a close with an inspiring havdalah ritual, then prepare to learn the secrets of Hamantaschen wine pairings with CBH partner Dave Block!  The Department Chair in Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis, Dave will introduce dessert wines to complement your favorite flavors.  Then relax with friends old and new as you taste these and other wines, enjoy desserts and socialize.
