A Celebration of Wine at the SFMOMA

By Ben Heskett

A quick note on an interesting “How Wine Became Modern” exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in advance of it closing on Apr. 17 – Time to get a visit on the calendar!

It’s an interesting exhibition, offering a good overview of wine basics, as well as the designs that wine inspires. I’ve been slow on the draw and only recent found the time to check it out.

A lot has been written about the exhibit. One of the best reviews can be found in the San Francisco Chronicle.

It’s a fun walk through. Though much of the exhibit reviews the events and characteristics of wine that are known to many oenophiles, the presentation of key moments – such as the famed 1976 Judgment of Paris – and elements that make wine so fun only underscores the beauty of an exceptional bottle, or a particularly striking vista at a vineyard.

Let us know what you think of the exhibit…
