Calendar Event

(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) Corning Museum of Glass: Fire and Vine: The Story of Glass and Wine with Katherine Larson

Jul 15, 2021
11:00 am to 12:00 pm
ONLINE

Join Katherine Larson, Curator of Ancient Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass, for a romp through the history of glass and wine around the world. The entwined histories of glass and wine extend back thousands of years, from lavish feasts of ancient Rome, to the polite society of Britain in the 1700s, to formal dinner parties of post-war America, to an essential experience within contemporary foodie culture. We'll follow the path of the grape as it travels from the vineyard to your drinking glass, and explore all the places it touches glass along the way.

Price: Member Fee: $15 Non-Member Fee: $25
