Weekly Wine Quiz #13 – Wine as a Matter of Life and … Death

Continuing our historical angle, here is a new quiz for you. While reading a wine book, I was surprised to learn about harsh ways wine industry was using in order to promote itself. What do I mean by the harsh ways? So there was a town which enacted a law, requiring all households to plant and tend for grape vines. The penalty for not complying? Nothing less than “pain of death”! Don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound pretty for me.

Anyway, would you care to guess which town was it?

Have a great long weekend! Cheers!
