The countries of North Africa have a long winemaking tradition. Some wine writers pinpoint the beginning of wine cultivation to the French Occupation, but the story is a far longer and more impressive one.

The story of North African wines starts long before France even existed. It begins in the ancient city-state of Carthage, in what is now modern-day Tunisia. The region was known to be the epicenter of wine growing, In the 4th century, it was famous for its countryside full of grapevines and olives.

In this class, we trace the history of winemaking and jump right into the modern era. We cover the wines of Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria. We will also talk about the origins of wine in Egypt: according to legend, it was the god Osiris himself who taught humanity to produce wine.
