Varieties Grown at the Experiment Station [New Mexico, 1904]

December 30, 2014 Leave a comment

I have wanted to write about the experimental vineyard of New Mexico for some time but have not yet found that time!  The vineyard was the site for studies of both table and wine grapes until the early 20th century.  Until I can devote further attention, here is an image of 25 varieties that were grown including Thompson’s Seedless, Chasselas Napoleon, Madre Field Comet, Trousseau and more!

Father Christmas with a cup of Wassail

December 24, 2014 Leave a comment

Here is an image of Father Christmas raising a cup of Wassail with Twelfth Cake, Plum Pudding, Roast Beef, and Hot Elder Wine arrayed before him. Behind him are bogies, spirits, a snap dragon, and a couple under the mistletoe.  Albeit odd but certainly interesting!

This photograph shows 16 soldiers of the 2nd Battalion of the Regiment of Cuba standing in a semicircle.  With rifles stacked up against each other in two groups, the men are at ease with musical instruments, two dogs, and at least one bottle of what appears to be red wine.

Goatskins of wine in a cart and on the back of a slave from Christoph Weiditz’s Das Trachtenbuch (1529)

These two images show the transport of wine in Spain during the early 16th century.  The images are from Christoph Weiditz’s Das Trachtenbuch (1529) published in Strasbourg.  This book focuses on scenes from Spain and represents the oldest publication of of European costumes.  This subject might sound familiar for this summer I published a costume image from Hans Heinrich Glaser’s Basler Kleidung (1634).  The first image in this post shows a man, leading two horses and a cart loaded with goatskins full of wine (red and yellow cart, red boots, blue dress, gray hood).  The wine is being transported in Toledo.  The second image shows a Moorish slave who was sold in Castile.  He is barefoot and shackled which surely must have complicated the job of carrying a full goatskin of wine (white pants and coat enhanced with silver).
