Product description

Review

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
