The Bellarmine name comes from wine jugs used in the 16th century to carry wine which was safer to drink than water in those times. The jugs had an etching of a bearded man thought to be Cardinal Bellarmino. He was the cardinal who separated the churches so that King Henry 8th could get a divorce. Thus the jugs became known as Bellarmine jugs.
Each wine label has an etching from the jugs and Willi has collected antiques since he was 12 years old so he has a large collection of these Bellarmine jugs as well as many other wine antiques including glasses and bottles.
