The Magic Of Wine - George H. Boynton

The Magic Of Wine
The Magic of Wine is a loving tribute to the libation most celebrated throughout the ages. Jacqueline Quillen, founder of Christie's wine department, and wine enthusiast George H. Boynton, Sr. have compiled both eloquent and amusing reflections on the gift of the grape from a variety of notables throughout the ages. The book includes memorable quotations from such diverse sources as Ovid, Robert Mondavi, Ernest Hemingway, Johann Strauss, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Alexander Pope, Shakespeare, Euripides, Jeanette Winterson, Charles Dickens, Louis Pasteur, Isak Dinesen, Leonard Bernstein, Mark Twain, and many, many others.<br/><br/><br/>Organizing quotations into such chapters as Wine Tasting, Wine and Health, and Humor, as well as those on individual wines such as Claret and Port, this charming volume reveals the richness and complexity of wine appreciation. A beautiful gift book, it is ideal for wine lovers, epicures, and anyone who enjoys the finer things in life.<br/><br/><br/>As the authors state in the introduction: "Pulling corks enhances conviviality and binds individuals together. We have yet to discover a selfish wine lover. Wine begs to be shared, and we would like to share with you in this book some of the fun and enjoyment that wine has given to us". The Magic of Wine pays homage to that singular substance.
