Welcome to Episode 1383, another episode of everybody needs a bit of scienza! Today, Stevie and the Professore are exploring Leonardo Wine Genio, a museum dedicated to the genius of Leonardo da Vinci in his home town of Vinci in Tuscany, where they discuss the great artist’s life and, in particular, his contribution to the world of wine. They also discuss the impact of the Renaissance and some of the other important figures involved in this great period of cultural, artistic and scientific enlightenment, including the Italian poet Dante Alighieri and the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goeth. The professore also discusses the vineyard in Milan that was given to Leonardo as a gift in 1498 and the lessons that today’s wine-makers can learn from Leonardo’s approach to agriculture and nature.
