Oxford Festival of the Arts

TASTE THE CLASSICS: The Rise of Wine in Ancient Cultures

Tickets £40

Inspired by the eleven panel mosaic representing mythological scenes associating Bacchus/Dionysius with the nine muses, the festival is delighted to be presenting wine and absinthe tastings in this year’s programme.

The mosaic is possibly the work of an African itinerant mosaicist in the late Roman period. It was discovered in 1947 by a team from Florence in the Roman Villa of Torre de Palma in southern Portugal and is now housed at the National Museum of Archaeology.

Wine has been present in our lives since the dawn of humankind. Join our tasting and learn what role wine had in ancient Georgian, Greek and Roman cultures.
