History in a Glass: Sixty Years of Wine Writing from Gourmet by Ruth Reichl

New York times bestselling author Ruth Reichl has pored through sixty-five years of wine articles in Gourmet to select the finest for History in a Glass. The result is a rollicking tale of great meals, great walks, and wonderful drinks as Americans discover the sensual and emotional pleasures of wine. These marvelous essays were written by men and women who not only were on hand to witness wine's boom in the United States, but in many cases helped to foster the environment that made it happen. Among this volume's diverse roster are accomplished food writers James Beard, Frank Schoonmaker, Gerald Asher, Frederick Wildman, Hugh Johnson, and Andre Simon, as well as literary lions less often associated with gustatory pursuits, such as Ray Bradbury. Covering more than six decades of epicurean delights, History in a Glass is an astonishing celebration of all things good and grape.
