This witty history of wine—its cultivation and enjoyment—sheds light on the rich traditions of wine from around the world

An apt gift for oenophiles everywhere, this book includes chapters on the development of wine production, from the use of casks to bottles to the switch from feet to presses, as well as tracing the global shift of wine production from traditional wine-producing regions to emerging wine exporters. With a selective focus on unexpected facts and lesser-known characters connected with wine, from the Greek gods of wine to the monks who created Champagne and the ingenious ways French winemakers protected priceless vintages during wartime, this gift edition explores the historical influences that have shaped our drinking taste.

Ruth Ball is the author of Rough Spirits and High Society and the founder of Alchemist Dreams, a company dedicated to handmade liqueurs that are blended to order.
