Wine, its properties and effects have been part of the culture of humankind for thousands of years. Since time immemorial, it has been used as nourishment and a stimulant, a ritual draught, a source of employment and research, a subject in art and literature, and a drug. The present issue of PCP Forum celebrates the cultural history of wine and winegrowing and shows how this subject has become an integral part of important cultural documents, including UNESCO Conventions and Federal Inventories.
