Seattle Wine Master and educator Joel Butler, of WineKnow, teams up with Biblical scholar Randall Heskett to trace the ways in which wine informed beliefs and contributed to Judeo-Christian tradition. Their book, Divine Vintage: Following the Wine Trail from Genesis to the Modern Age (Palgrave Macmillan), is not only a guide to the historical and cultural significance of wine, but also a guide to historic vineyards still operating in Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, and Lebanon. Tonight's program includes information about wineries to visit, the authors' favorite wines, and ... some sample tastes.
