How Wine Colonized the World

As noted in How Wine Colonized the World, wine's roots extend beyond the literal horticultural sense. The beverage is also rooted in history, spirituality, and colonization. Following an interactive timeline, readers will learn more about these roots, traveling from 4100 B.C. (when the first known winery was established in Armenia) to 2013 (discussing China's consumption and production of wine). Along the way, readers will find themselves traveling to six of the seven continents. Unfortunately, Antarctica has yet to cultivate the drink, though the end of the timeline jokingly implies it might be next. Clicking on the right- and left- sides of the page or using arrow keys, readers can scroll through the resource's 24 panels. Each panel offers a short paragraph and visual describing an influential period in the world history of wine. Some panels even contain links to additional related content. This resource was created by VinePair, a "digital media company delivering accessible, entertaining, and inspiring content about drinks and the experiences you have with a glass in hand."
