About the Book

The products drawn from the grape vine are among the most diverse of any agricultural crop. Aside from the influences of soils and and climate, this diversity embodies the traditions of countless genrations of wine growers and vintners. Exploring this interaction between people and environments, "Wine and the Vine provides a full understanding of the growth and spread of viticulture and wine production throught human history.
"A thoroughly fascinating book offering many insights into the importance of wine in our culture and the effect of variables such as religion, government, marketing, economics, and even colonialism on the growth of the wine industry... It will give the wine lover scores of insights into aspects of wine that for decades have simply been taken for granted."
--California Grapevine

Editorial Reviews

..." well written ... The book, in fact, is a "tour de force on the historical geography of wine, but do not expect to find within its pages the answer to the perennial question of what wine goes well with chicken."
