Drinking together has been a tradition for thousands of years. Let us be your designated driver as you virtually explore how our ancestors partied like it was 7000 BCE! Ancient Alcohol After Hours offers a fun and unconventional way to travel back in time. Whether at the Museum or virtually, we coordinate this educational journey with beverage pairings to bring the stories to life.

Ancient Alcohol: Tour and Wine Pairing will uncover 9,000 years of wine culture around the globe. Discover the role of wine in the human story, from agriculture and trade to social life and religion. Some traditions may be familiar, while others may surprise you—like tapping a palm tree to create wine or adding resin, fruit, and even cheese to your glass! Your tour guide Janelle Sadarananda will answer your history and wine related questions along the way and you’ll hear from archaeological scientists about ancient plant remains and grape DNA.

Drink along with us!

We suggest three wine pairings that relate to the content of the tour: a rosé, a Gewurztraminer (white), and a Sangiovese (red). Select the brand of your preference, and buy all three, or try just one!
