In this episode, Nachliel presents a cork from a bottle of wine from Carmel winery. The image on the cork takes us into Book of Numbers, into the history of the company that chose it, of the "First Aliyah," and of modern Israeli agriculture, into Jeremiah, and as well into propaganda and lashon ha-ra. Meir-Simchah steers us into considering wine more generally, as a part of human culture and spirituality, and that takes us into Noah, why he got drunk, the mind-brain relationship, earth and earthlings, humus and homo, adamah and Adam.
