Els grecs varen ser els introductors del vi a casa nostra

Greek wine: the focus of a new exhibition at the city’s archaeology museum

The exhibition features everything from ancient objects to interactive multimedia resources

Greek wine: from the ancient world to contemporary Catalan wineries is a temporary exhibition that can be seen at the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia that covers areas such as the cultivation of wine in historical times, the wine-making process, wine consumption, the mechanisation of the countryside and contemporary wine culture. The exhibition makes good use of modern museum technologies, including interactive and multimedia displays, as well as displaying unique archaeological exhibits.

The Phoenicians and the Greeks were responsible for spreading the production and consumption of wine around the Mediterranean in the 8th century BC. The exhibition explores this classical world through wine, tracing it as a social, cultural and economic phenomenon right up to today’s society, highlighting the fact that wine has always been more than just a drink.

The exhibition will be at the Archaeology Museum from 29 September 2016 to 29 January 2017. It will be complemented by a number of parallel activities, including debates, talks, guided visits and even wine tastings, which will take place every Sunday at 12.30pm.
