As one of Western civilizations formative symbols, it's safe to say that most who came of age in the West have heard the New Testament account of Jesus turning water into wine. But few know how important wine and its production was to ancient Israelites, and how its inextricable place in their lives is reflected in the Biblical narrative. Jabier Marquinez gives readers a unique insight into this historical winemaking world with direct references from the Old and New Testament which relay such intricate details as: Specific vineyard practices from grafting and pruning to watering and fertilizing. Ethical labour agreements with foreign vineyard workers. Vineyard pests and proper abatement techniques. Harvesting, blending and storage procedures . Ancient winery technology. The use of wine as medicine and dyes. Why a farmer with an active vineyard was entitled to a military service exemption. Wine in the Bible is a fascinating examination of the daily working lives and practices of Biblical-era winemakers, and wine drinkers.
