Ep 06: Gisela Kreglinger – what wine teaches us about earth-keeping and living life to the full
Jun 16, 2021 Season 1 Episode 6
A Rocha

Wine is mentioned over 1,000 times in the Bible, but what is its significance for the Christian faith today? And how can we produce and buy wines which care for creation?

Gisela Kreglinger grew up on a family-owned winery in Franconia, Germany where her family has crafted wine for many generations.  This unique experience has inspired her to write several books, including 'The Spirituality of Wine' and 'The Soul of Wine'. As a trained theologian with a PhD from the University of St Andrew's, Gisela has devoted her life to cultivating a more holistic, embodied spirituality that takes creation seriously, not least in the form of wine.

She speaks with Bryony and Peter about her childhood as the daughter of winemakers, the complexity of a good wine and the importance of sustainable vineyards.
