Wine is a popular gift to give for the holidays.

The Rosenbach Museum is hosting a hands-on tour March 18 focused on wine. During hands-on-tours, which run most Fridays and Sundays with different themes, guests are able to get up-close and personal with rare books and items that are not usually on view to the public.

For the March 18 tour, attendees will explore the history of wine in literature.

From mentions of sherry found on the pages of Shakespeare’s "Henry IV" to Leopold Bloom’s burgundy in "Ulysses," there is no shortage of wine within great literary works.

Advance registration is strongly recommended by the Museum since there are a limited number of spots on each tour.

For this tour, registration also gives guests an extra perk. When purchasing a ticket, attendees will receive a free $15 gift certificate to Tria.
