I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a little guilt over my increased wine consumption and pursuant weight gain during COVID-19 lockdowns. What made me feel better? A trip through Veneto wine country of course. That and having a laugh while standing in front of The Last Supper fresco in the Pieve di San Giorgio di Valpolicella.
Pieve di San Giorgio di Valpolicella Last Supper Fresco
I was staring up at the fresco when I saw what I thought was Jesus seated in the middle… drinking a glass of wine.
Okay, so it wasn’t Jesus that was drinking the wine in the fresco, rather one of his apostles but still! According to scripture, Communion originated at the Last Supper when Jesus passed unleavened bread and wine around the table and explained to his Apostles that the bread represented his body and the wine his blood.
If Jesus choose wine to represents a part of him, surely he must have loved it too. With that, I’ll stop joking around. Tomorrow’s Italy Pic of the Day will be from the most beautiful wine region in Veneto! Can you guess where?
