By The Glass

Omeka Wine logo.png

By the Glass was conceived as a sample of a larger project to connect menu entries about wine with their contextual history. The project brings together wines and their prices from New York City menus with their growing region and grape type from outside research to show what a tool for historical enoculture research might look like. The project began as a class assignment in Fall of 2018 and was inspired by the realization that there was no tool that we could find to connect this information. As it exists here, it is a proof of concept for what could be a larger tool.
