The Art of Drinking Wine (Like The French Do)

Monseigneur le Vin


In stock


A distinctly cheeky but highly informative French introduction to the art of drinking wine.

Originally published in French in 1927 as part of a set of promotional books for French wine distributor Nicolas, Monseigneur le Vin is a lovely illustrated jewel of a wine primer brought back into print.

The book is perfectly relevant to today’s wine lovers, charmingly presented: wine information like bouquet, color, and taste profile is essentially the same today, and Montorgueil’s reverence for wine is delivered with an élan and is oh-so-very French, with observations like “A full-bodied red wine wants to be laid on its side and made cozy.”

Delightful and informative, The Art of Drinking Wine is sure to appeal to new and experienced wine lovers alike.
