Reviews

"An indispensable read... Saintsbury's thoughtful love of drink comes through clearly." SF Chronicle As much a model for wine writing as ... an historical document revealing how wines were once regarded and how times have changed. -- John Mariani Bloomberg News "If you love to drink wine, and love a good read, you have to get ahold of this book." Vinography A glimpse into our viticultural past, as well as a revelation of how great wine and great literature can go hand-in-hand. Good Wine Under $20 "Few wine books posses the iconic status of George Saintsbury's Notes on a Cellar-Book." Wine Spectator "There is much food for thought here, and a facinating window on another age of connoisseurship. " -- Jancis Robinson Jancisrobinson.com "Read this book twice: once without pausing to flip back and forth-you'll be beguiled, befuddled and amused-and then once with the notes." The Wine News
