Description

THE BOOK THAT BEGAN it all: Michael Broadbent’s definitive guide republished as a special Commemorative Edition with contributions from friends, colleagues and family, plus a unique insight into the author’s artistic and musical talents.

Before the first publication of Wine Tasting in 1968, appreciating fine wine was a pastime enjoyed by the privileged few: there was no set methodology for comparing one wine with another, and no common vocabulary by which tasters could compare notes or pass on their knowledge. Michael Broadbent changed all that. By following his detailed approach to wine tasting – taking in all we see, smell and taste – he brought an appreciation of wine’s true qualities within everyone’s grasp and launched an industry that has never looked back. This special Commemorative Edition contains the original text from the 1975 edition, prefaced by introductions from Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson MW, Steven Spurrier and the late Gerard Basset.

"Reading this book for the first time, I was struck by how much Michael Broadbent still influences the way we taste and appreciate wine."  - Washington Post

The Producer

Academie du Vin Library

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!
