The Spirituality of Wine

“Of all the accusations against Christians, the most terrible one was uttered by Nietzsche when he said that Christians had no joy. . . . And we must recover the meaning of this great joy.”

-Alexander Schmemann

Christianity has a rich history of feasting and joy in connection with wine. This can readily be seen in Jesus’ first miracle at the wedding in Cana (John 2), turing water into wine. But the connections to Christian spirituality run much deeper (beginning in Judaism).

Spirituality of wineDr. Gisela Kreglinger is uniquely gifted in her ability to weave together the worlds of the Bible, spirituality and history, all while putting them in conversation with the modern craft of winemaking. She has a PhD from University of St. Andrews in Scotland in Christian spirituality and grew up on a family winery in Germany. She gave us a special talk about the joy of wine and feasting (the topic of her most recent book), answered questions and led us in a sampling of some wines sourced in local vineyards.
