Description:

The story of wine, one of the foundations of Western civilization, is the story of religion, medicine, science, war, discovery and dream. The essential historical background and the key developments in the history of wine through the ages are outlined in this compact, engaging, easy-to-read and well-illustrated text, with lists of top vintages. For thousands of years wine mixed with water was the safe drink. It was a key ingredient of medications. The antiseptic properties of the alcohol it contains saved lives.

 

Wine was associated with many religious rituals, some of which survive today. The story of wine involves scientists like Hippocrates of Kos, Zaccharia Razi, Isaac Newton (albeit indirectly), Louis Pasteur, and many others. It also involves colorful people such as Gregory of Tours and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Vines made their way to the Americas with the Conquistadores. Then wines almost disappeared in the late 1800s as Phylloxera spread throughout the world. This scourge was followed by World War I, the Great Depression, Prohibition, and World War II.

 

Today, winemaking has enjoyed a renaissance and many excellent and affordable wines are produced throughout the world. This eBook provides a quick introduction to wine through history, geography, chemistry, and taste. Useful for all who enjoy wine, the eBook is also designed to be a possible foundation for a one-semester course on the history of wine. Many eBooks discuss today's wines without much historical information. Others overwhelm potential readers by their sheer size. This eBook provides a quick introduction to wine through history, geography, chemistry, and taste, and is useful for all who enjoy wine.
