History in a Glass: Sixty Years of Wine Writing from Gourmet
Advance praise for History in a Glass "A fascinating history
of wine culture in America, with an eloquence that spans
generations. It's a great wine primer, and very entertaining.
Crack open some claret, fry up some frogs' legs, and drink in
several lifetimes' worth of wine wisdom." -David Lynch,
co-author of Vino Italiano and Vino Italiano Buying Guide
"What better way to get an education in the world of wine than
taking a stroll through time while reading commentary from
Gourmet's most important contributors? Not only have many of
these writers captured our attention for over forty years, but many
of them have profoundly influenced our wine-drinking culture as
well." -Daniel Johnnes, wine director, Montrachet "The
pages of Gourmet take us on a retrospective journey through
America's ever-evolving love of wine and its terroir; we are
drawn to wine because it transcends our humanity, telling our
story, exposing our desires, and giving us hope for great vintages
to come." -Joseph Bastianich, wine director, Otto Enoteca
"A dazzling historical and literary tour of wine and the wine
life by some of our wisest, most entertaining professionals.
History in a Glass includes a treasure trove of great meals and
great bottles. I read it through in one go." -Kermit Lynch,
author of Adventures on the Wine Route and Inspiring Thirst
"From the Hardcover edition."
