Course content

Wine is part of the Greek cultural heritage, its production and the accompanying tradition exists for more than 4.000 years!In Greek mythology, we find the Olympian Gods that rule Cosmos. One out of twelve is Dionysus who is identified as the God of revelry and wine, also known as Bacchus. Furthermore, Greeks had many philosophical quotes regarding wine. Plato believed that “wine fills the heart with courage” and Euripides that “where there is no wine there is no love”.

In this online course you will learn about the cultural history of wine and how it was firstly produced. You will also have the chance to learn the secrets and techniques you need to use in order to make your own wine. Further on, the course extends to the nutritional value of wine, how it can be combined and mixed with food and how beneficial it can be for your health. This course applies perfectly for anyone who would love to learn all the historical details and myths related to that divine product.

Lastly, the course focuses on the purposes of wine production, either as a source of inspiration or as financial assistance.
