Description
The British Library
A fun and fascinating history of a favourite tipple. Full of tantalising trivia, lesser-known characters and amusing anecdotes. 'The Philosophy of Wine' explores wine’s cultivation, cultural impact, and the different wine traditions around the world. From Greek gods of wine to monks creating fine wine. Discover how an emigré from revolutionary France became the unofficial agent for Champagne in London; how the French walled up 20,000 precious bottles to keep them from the Nazis; and how the father of Californian wine came to be eaten by a crocodile.
