Festive Tapestry - The Vintage (54)- Extra Large
From the Shopdrops Gallert of Old World Tapestries
This remarkable representation of the grape-gathering and the wine-press on a millie-fleures background hangs in the Cluny Museum in Paris.
The original tapestry was probably woven in Tournai in the XV century. The tapestry tells depicts the noble owners of a 15th century vineyard as they inspect the winemaking and sample their wine.

Wine was a universal medicinal drink in the Middle Ages and at the time the world's only known antiseptic. It was used to disinfect cuts. It was a favorite cure for sore throats, and where hygiene was poor, preferred over water.
As winemaking improved - in the able hands of the Benedictines - a suspicion slowly fermented that monks perhaps were more interested in celebration than in the mass. It was a hot topic of discussion in village squares all over Europe, and worldy friars as boozy, slovenly and gluttonous later became a common theme in literature and tavern sing-alongs.
"To drink like a Capuchin is to drink poorly, To drink like a Benedictine is to drink deeply, To drink like a Dominican is pot after pot, But to drink like a Franciscan Is to drink the cellar dry!
- Old French Drinking Song
