Maurice Healy’s love letter to wine, and to the wines he enjoyed with friends during his long study of the subject. Healy takes us on a comprehensive tour of Europe, visiting all the key wine regions of the time and commenting on the impact of World War II on wine production. Originally written in 1940, this edition was first published after Healy’s premature death in 1950 with notes from his great friend Ian Maxwell Campbell – amusing asides that show how the two often disagreed on the subject of wine! An elegiac yet often humorous study of wine, as readable now as it was 70 years ago.
266pp, 216 x 153mm, paperback
Our aim at the Académie du Vin Library is to bring you the very best wine writing of the past, the present and the future. Some of our books are undisputed classics – refreshed for today’s reader but without losing any of the charm, or wisdom, of a more innocent time. Our new titles are, we believe, destined to become the classics of the future: easy to read, easy on the eye, and all with something new and important to say.
We like to think of ourselves not just as publishers and booksellers, but as a community of wine lovers, united by a passion for learning more about what makes the wine world so special. We hope you will join us. Happy reading!
