Spiced Wine at Vitskøl 2019

This weekend the husband and me are going to be at the medieval marked event Vistkøl, where you can find us and taste our delicious spiced wine and talk with us about the history of spices. Find us near the food tents in the middle of the marked.

Spiced wine dates back to at least 3000 BCE in Egypt and has been drunk though out European history in many forms. Recipes for hypeocrates dates back to the end of the 1300’s.

The newest piece of infomation I have come across: (from wiki)

“Spiced wines were usually made by mixing an ordinary (red) wine with an assortment of spices such as ginger, cardamom, pepper, grains of paradise, nutmeg, cloves and sugar. These would be contained in small bags which were either steeped in wine or had liquid poured over them to produce hypocras and claré. By the 14th century, bagged spice mixes could be bought ready-made from spice merchants.”
