Welcome to WineBoy! In my last article, I spent a good deal of space simply describing the aesthetic beauty of Patland Estate Vineyards. Hopefully I was able to communicate at least a small part of the unique atmosphere we possess. In my closing, I mentioned something called the wine culture. I called it “the intricate interplay of people, wine, food, atmosphere, music, and art.” Fascinated by all this, I decided to further examine the subject through one of my final papers this quarter; the objective of which was to analyze the role of wine in the changing global community. Below is the introduction, which I hope will spark your interest, and maybe even raise some questions about wine and its relation to the changing world.
