The Penn Museum is Hosting “Ancient Alcohol After Hours” A Virtual Tour and Wine Pairing Event!
Now that the museums are opening back up many history buffs and adventure seekers will look to wonder the halls and take in the sights. However, many museums are still offering cool virtual events for those looking to enjoy history from the comfort of home. The Penn Museum is one such institution that is offering an array of virtual events including a virtual tour and wine pairing, “Ancient Alcohol After Hours.” on January 22nd from 7-9 pm.
Ancient Alcohol: Tour and Wine Pairing will uncover 9,000 years of wine culture around the globe. Discover the role of wine in the human story –from agriculture and trade to social life and religion. Some of these traditions may be familiar, while some may surprise you –like how to tap a palm tree to create wine or adding resin, fruit, or even cheese to your wine!
Drinking together has been a tradition for thousands of years. Log on, pour yourself a glass, and let the Penn Museum be your designated driver as you virtually explore how our ancestors partied like it was 7000 BCE. Your tour guide, Janelle Sadarananda, will answer your history and wine related questions along the way and you’ll hear from archaeological scientists about ancient plant remains and grape DNA. The cost in $10 per adult.
The Penn Museum is offering participants three wine pairing suggestions that relate to the content of the tour. While the brand can be guided by your preference, they suggest the following varieties: a Rosé, Gewürtztraminer (white), and Sangiovese (red).
