The Translucent History of Wine

The Corning Museum of Glass in western New York features a new exhibition on wine.

By Florence Fabricant

If your summer road trip takes you to New York’s Southern Tier, along the border with Pennsylvania, or to the Finger Lakes wine country, plan a stop in Corning, the city known for glassware and home of the vast collection in its Museum of Glass. Starting Saturday and running through the end of the year there’s a new exhibit that explores the connection between glass and wine, from ancient Rome to the present. A sealed bottle of wine from an 18th century shipwreck and an elaborate glass wine jug cut in a Russian pattern are among the objects on display.

“Fire and Vine: The Story of Glass and Wine,” July 3 through Dec. 31, 2022, $10 to $20 admission (children and teens under 17 admitted free); Corning Museum of Glass, 1 Museum Way, Corning, N.Y., 800-732-6845,
