Friends of Gutenberg - Jour Fixe

Thema: Gutenberg and the wine

The Gutenberg Society invites you again to the Friends of Gutenberg - Jour Fixe and may now present itself for the first time as an evening event! The October event thus serves as a kick-off for our future evening Jour Fixe. All old and new friends of the Gutenberg Society and of the popular Jour Fixe format are cordially invited to an exciting discussion in a spectacular Mainz cultural ambience - we will take care of your physical well-being.

Topic: Gutenberg and wine
: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stephan Füssel

"Gutenberg and wine" highlights three aspects: a biographical one (what do we know about Gutenberg's wine consumption in Strasbourg and Mainz), a professional one (the usual wine enjoyment of journeymen in the book printer's manuals) and a historical one (incunabula about wine in literature and with guidebooks). Presented by the holder of the Gutenberg Chair, Prof. Dr. Stephan Füssel, with scientific precision and humour.

As a special highlight after the lecture there will be a wine tasting of the winery "Wein&Gut Bernhard Stenner", conducted by the Mainz wine princess 2016, Malenka Stenner. Five wines will be presented that could have delighted Gutenberg's palate. Please register at or by telephone at 06131-226420.
