This delightful first edition of ‘In Praise of Wine’ by Alec Waugh will provide absorbing reading for the connoisseur, for the neophyte and for anyone who enjoys a book that combines personal reminiscence and anecdotes with authoritative information on its subject. Waugh’s interest in wine has brought him a great variety of experience and ‘In Praise of Wine’ contains a lifetime’s reflections on this most delightful of pursuits, embracing drinking under conditions of Prohibition in America, wineless years in the Middle East during the War and wines in Shakespeare. The perfect gift for a wine enthusiast.
