Synopsis

Through a Sparkling Glass will both educate and entertain you on the wonder and joy of wine and its place in our lives and culture. From the importance of ageing (wine and people) to Champagne cork removal the correct way, Epicurus to Ernest Hemingway, Moscato to Rose, and the notion ofauthentic wine happiness. An A-Z of wine stories, information and life lessons. Each essay or entry concludes with a list of key facts about the particular subject. Through a Sparkling Glass firmly places wine and all its wonder at the centre of our enjoyment of life and culture and the way we live our lives. Entries cover aspects of wine production, varieties, history and myth, tradition and custom, modern manners, the philosophy of life and celebrating the mystery of wine. A delight to dip into, Through a Sparkling Glass will inform you in the most entertaining way and introduce you to pleasures found in your wine glass. The book taps into the emerging 'emotional palate' category of wine writers such as Alice Fiering (US) and Terry Thiesse (US). This has been successfully replicated in food writing and literature. A perfect book for those who love wine, food and the finer things in life.

As well as those who want to enhance their knowledge of wine but want an entertaining way to attain that information. The book will be a well-designed gift package making it the perfect gift for intelligent men or women whoenjoy wine as part of a sophisticated mix of culinary delights rather than as an academic or technical pursuit. This book lifts wine writing out of the niche market full of technical information and into the domain of human engagement and real life where wine is enjoyed and broadly experienced.
