To your health Caesar! Wine and the Gauls
Presented by the SAQ

Montreal, Canada

Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History

A must-see exhibition for history and wine buffs


Montreal, Canada, 2011-04-07 - From May 18 to October 16, 2011, Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History will be presenting To Your Health, Caesar! Wine and the Gauls. More than 200 objects from 25 lenders, including some leading Canadian, North American and French institutions — one of them the prestigious Louvre Museum — and private collections, will guide visitors along the fascinating “wine road” from its earliest days, with special attention to the birth of wine making in Gaul (modern-day France).

This major exhibition is being produced with the kind participation of the museums of Roman Gaul in Lyon-Fourvière and Saint-Romain-en-Gal-Vienne, and marks the 20th anniversary of the twinning arrangement between the museums of Roman Gaul and Pointe-à-Callière.

The vast array of splendid objects displayed in Montréal will include some rare objects and masterpieces revealing the sacred dimensions of wine, its uses and the main steps involved in producing it. This precious liquid has played an integral part in the history of human civilizations and helped shape some of the world’s leading societies. While quality wine of all kinds graces our modern-day tables, there is much for us to learn about it.

“We are delighted to mark the 20th anniversary of the twinning arrangement between Pointe-à-Callière and the museums of Roman Gaul with such an appealing subject,” says Francine Lelièvre, the Museum’s Executive Director. “Wine is a timeless beverage with a fascinating past. It has come down to us through the ages, and is still part of our customs and everyday lives. Whether you are a wine or a history buff, you are sure to find the exhibition intriguing.”

Le vin. Nectar des Dieux.
Génie des hommes
This book is a great reference work to go along with the exhibition. In it, more than thirty experts examine every aspect of wine, from its origins and the mythology surrounding it to production, consumption, Gallic vineyards, varieties, wine in Roman Italy and more. It is available for $44.95 from the Museum gift shop or the online gift shop

To Your Health, Caesar! Wine and the Gauls, on from May 18 to October 16, 2011, is being produced and mounted by Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History, with the kind participation of the museums of Roman Gaul in Lyon-Fourvière and Saint-Romain-en-Gal-Vienne.

The Museum thanks its sponsors : SAQ, Astral, Air Canada Cargo, Hotel InterContinental and Tourisme Montréal as well as its partners Zeste, Atout France, La Presse and The Gazette.

Pointe-à-Callière, the Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History, has been open to the public since 1992. Rising above authentic remains of Montréal’s birthplace, and as the only major museum in Québec and Canada devoted to archaeology, Pointe-à-Callière showcases local and international archaeological and historical heritage through permanent and temporary exhibitions, publications, conferences, lectures, and a wide range of educational and cultural activities.

The Museum is subsidized by the city of Montréal.
