AN ELEGANTLY BOUND collection of fine wine writing past and present – the perfect gift for wine lovers everywhere (and the wine lovers in their life).
With contributions from Michael Broadbent on good and bad vintages, Ian Maxwell Campbell on Bordeaux vs Burgundy, George Orwell and PG Wodehouse on the complementary pleasures of wine and tea, Randall Grahm on the search for California’s ‘magic grape’ and Andrew Caillard MW on the art of the wine label, it brims with wit and wisdom from some of the most erudite wine writers ever to raise a glass.
Like Cyril Ray’s classic Compleat Imbiber before it, In Vino Veritas might rightfully be described as ‘the quintessential late-evening or bedtime book for those who like wine’.
"The good bits, the juicy bits, the useful bits and the unsettled arguments that bring your favourite drink to life. You’ll find them here." - Hugh Johnson
