This beautiful book is the fruit of a long and passionate inquiry into the privileged relationship which wine has enjoyed with the divine for over six thousand years. Wine is at the heart of spirituality as a mediator between men and the gods, synonym of joy and sharing. Could we imagine Antiquity without the gods of wine? The Bible without its four hundred and forty-one quotations concerning vines and wine? The Jewish passover without the four cups of wine? The paradise of Allah without the rivers of precious wine? Évelyn Malnic, journalist and specialist author in the domain of wine and gastronomy, explores the sacred texts, rituals and popular festivals in order to demonstrate that wine creates a link between civilizations, beliefs and religions. Furthermore, wine has inspired many artists and sparked a particular lifestyle, which is evoked through the numerous colour illustrations that enrich this delightful book.
