Let's take a closer look at wine, how it's made, and how it's just about as old as time
Wine’s just about as old as time, we think. If you’re curious about how this special beverage came into being, then you’re going to want to check out the Mamablip video, presented by fine Italian wine expert, Filippo Bartolotta, as we take a closer look at all this mechanisms pushing forward this drink made from the simplest ingredients you can imagine.
From prehistoric man, to the sophisticated Greek and Roman civilizations, from peasants to educated monks, wine has undergone a path few other elements can claim to have experiences. Refinement and adjustment have enabled this ancient drink to find an irreplaceable part of human history. For as long as people have been thirsty (and afraid to drink the water), wine has been turned to to slake thirst and a need for comfort.
Learn with Filippo some of the magic behind wine, and maybe our long-lived love affair with wine of all colors and bodies will make a little more sense. They don’t call the grape vine the civilizing vine for nothing, after all!
