“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
― Ernest Hemingway

The art of Viticulture predates the Romans where the culture of wine gained popularity among the ancient Greek poets, artists, and historians. Since the ages, wine has been considered the privilege of the elite class and the same trend has its roots in our present culture. The Greek God of wine, Dionysus, the patron deity of wine, represented its intoxicating power and also the social and beneficial influences. It has been known that the Mediterranean people left behind barbarism when they learned how to cultivate vine and olive.

Being a symbol of sophistication, wine not only adds class to your image but is also beneficial for your health, for it has been proven that drinking an optimal amount of wine is good for your heart. People ask what makes wine so sophisticated. They wonder whether it is the fancy wine glasses or the jewel-like color or is it because it represents some special occasions and specially ordered during celebrations. The image of sophistication that wine adds has its reasons rooted deep in its history.

The wine has its roots deeply embedded and enjoys a higher place in the holy scriptures of Christianity. The superior edge that wine has among the other liquors is directly related to the Catholic churches all over the world for it is offered as a Holy Sacrament in mass. Missionaries throughout the world have spread the art of viticulture, cultivating the need to have wine in the areas where the missionaries were executing “God’s work.” Having deep-rooted faith in religion, people embraced wine to be the superior drink as it represents the “blood of Christ” by the Catholic Church.

Gaining importance throughout history, wine evolved and became a drink for the elite class. Even though technology has the advanced manifold and there are a plethora of ways to cultivate vines with the aid of different machines and modern techniques, the best quality wine still can only be made by hand which is carried out in wineries in Placerville.
