Desert Island Wine
In Desert Island Wine Miles Lambert-Gocs gives both veteran and novice enophiles something to chuckle and think about when raising their glasses to Dionysus, the Wine-god.Tune in to the first-ever interview with Dionysus. Chat with the owner of Gobs-of-Fruit Vineyards, Everywhere, USA. Be alerted to the 21st century victory of neo-prohibitionism. What does Captain Ahab have to say about wine and whale steak, or Dostoevsky about Chateau Lafite? Sit in on a heart-to-heart with Thomas Jefferson, the first American enophile. Find out what puts the terror in terroir and probe the dark side of wine complexity. Become attuned to the 'schools' of wine-food combination, consider the cutting-edge advice of Mr. Corky and take a lesson from the obituary of a disgraced wine pundit. Follow the author's half-year stint of drinking the same wine daily - his 'desert island wine.' Whether a wine novice or an old hand at pulling corks, this book will strike the funny bone and pique curiosity about wine.An addendum chapter gives a factual account of the ancient Greek origin of the cabernet grape. This is a new discovery by the author, with a citation of all source materials, and specification of the extant Greek grape variety that is the cabernet's distant ancestor.
