"Quickly, bring me some wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever." Understanding the Viticulture Industry in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana
Author(s): David Breetzke
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The agricultural industry in America was one of the most profitable industries of our past. This paper will focus on one important aspect of that industry. The viticulture industry was firmly established in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky from as early as the 1800s. Unlike most agricultural industries, preparing, cultivating and harvesting grapes took the right property, great skill and a passion for wine. Even though the viticulture industry was ultimately crippled by a silent killer, remnants of this dynamic industry still remain. The purpose of this paper is to lay the ground work for research and recordation of this valuable Midwest agricultural industry.
