Event Details

Gisela Kreglinger, author of the book "The Spirituality of Wine" will be discussing her work at Urbano Cellars Winery on Thursday, June 2 from 7:00-9:00 PM.

In her book Gisela Kreglinger offers a fresh, holistic vision of the Christian life that sees God at work in all created things, including vineyards, the work of vintners, and the beauty of wellcrafted wine shared with others around a table. Kreglinger begins by examining wine in the Bible, in the history of the church, and in the Lord's Supper, and these reflections culminate in a theology of joy and feasting that celebrates the human senses as gifts for tasting the goodness of God.

In the second part of the book Kreglinger brings Christian spirituality and the world of wine together in new ways, exploring such matters as technology and wine-crafting, the health benefits of wine, alcohol abuse, consumerism, and soul care. Her discussion is enriched by interviews with thirty vintners from around the world as well as her own experience growing up on a family winery in Bavaria. 

Alice Waters said, "Gisela Kreglinger writes with good humor and real piety about the transformative power of good wine. This is a thoughtful, prayerful, and wide-ranging book, which reminds us on every page that spirituality and gastronomy are inextricably linked. I will not soon forget her theologically informed and deeply perceptive analysis of Babette’s Feast, by Isak Dinesen, one of my favorite texts."
