Episode Summary

EDIT
Wine
AIRED:
A glass a day is said to keep the doctor away. A defeated Napoleon drowned his sorrows in it; Thomas Jefferson became obsessed with it. Wine is an integral part of our culture and more wine is consumed today than ever before. Supermarket shelves that once carried only box wine and jugs are now lined with wines from Australia, Chile, and South Africa. Aerial imaging and infrared photography once used by NASA to map the moon is now employed by wineries to analyze soil, vine vigor, and even disease. Paying tribute to wine's unique history we will travel the world over to explore wineries, the worlds' most historic wine cellar and the oldest restaurant in Paris.moreless

      • Narrator: It lifts the spirits and intoxicates the sense. Gods were created for it, now robots bottle it, and sometimes its cost can make a prince a pauper. Not bad for something we shake, stomp and hide underground. Now: Wine, on Modern Marvels.
