From the publisher: Wine: A Very Peculiar History takes a sideways look at one of the oldest and most widely consumed beverages in the world. You’ll learn about the origins of the fermenting process, the vintner’s craft, the drink’s place in mythology and culture, how to read a label, and the ways in which tastes (and wine itself) have developed over the centuries. Includes a glossary and fun illustrations throughout.
