Inventing Wine: A New History of One of the World's Most Ancient Pleasures.pdf
Thoughtful and provocative, this book shows that the history of wine is as complex as the history of human society. --Esther Mobley
Because science and technology have opened new avenues for vintners, our taste in wine has grown ever more diverse. Wine is now the subject of careful chemistry and global demand. Paul Lukacs recounts the journey of wine through history--how wine acquired its social cachet, how vintners discovered the twin importance of place and grape, and how a basic need evolved into a realm of choice.
