For many centuries, wine has been a foodstuff, a tonic and an essential part of everyday life. Today, wine is seen as medically suspect and sometimes socially problematic. Enjoyment in moderation is the new norm.

The ‘From Drinking to Savoir-Boire’ collection contains more than 360 paintings, of which many are the work of great masters!
