A Handbook of Wine - How to Buy, Serve, Store and Drink It Originally published London in 1922. This book on wine is designed as a practical handbook for the reader who wishes the knowledge necessary for him to buy wisely, to store safely, to serve correctly, and to drink with greatest enjoyment. The illustrations are explanatory, not merely decorative. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
