Overview

Since its first publication in 1920, George Saintsbury's classic Notes on a Cellar-Book has remained one of the greatest tributes to drink and drinking in the literature of wine. A collection of tasting notes, menus, and robust opinions, the work is filled with anecdotes and recollections of wines and spirits consumed—from the heights of Romanée-Conti to the simple pleasures of beer, flip, and mum. Thomas Pinney brings this unique work alive for contemporary audiences by providing the keys to a full understanding of Notes on a Cellar-Book in a new edition that includes explanatory endnotes, an essay on the book's legacy, and additional articles on wine by Saintsbury.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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 an historical document revealing how wines were once regarded and how times have changed.—Bloomberg News

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

"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
