Wine, Type & Culture:
A time travelling tasting journey through type & wine
Wine tasting evening
* Two nights only *
Learn about the dramatic impact of type and how it has shaped our world at a unique wine tasting event. Author Sarah Hyndman will take guests on a time travelling journey through pivotal times when she considers that type has been the catalyst for change. Co-host and wine expert Grant Hedley has paired each with a delicious wine, which will be served with activities and stimuli for all the senses as each story is brought to life.
What do the fonts you encounter every day reveal about attitudes, the zeitgeist, cultural change, history repeating, faked news and the modern world? Find out how type was on the front line of revolutions and change, not only to spread the message, but sometimes as the trigger that caused them.
The incredible history of type is brought to life as you find out how typefaces not only changed the world but that their power still resonates. These are the stories of a hacked wine press, the original disruptors, entrepreneurial perseverance, explorers, inventors, revolutions, nostalgia, authenticity, and our vision for the future of type and wine based on trend predictions.
