"Sometimes the love of wine is not just a hobby or even a passion, but is a religion!" Cal Poly Religious Studies professor and avid wine student Stephen Lloyd-Moffett argues in a forthcoming book that wine can indeed fulfill a spiritual dimension in our lives if we become attuned to its deepest potential. In this lecture and workshop, he will share his insights into the soul of wine and then lead some wine-tasting activities that aim to cultivate a deeper spiritual relationship to the fruit of the vine. Based on his popular class "The Religion of Wine," this course promises to be fun, thought-provoking, and instructional. Who knows, you might just have a wine epiphany!
