Amazing resource!  May 8, 2011

This is an excellent landscape history textbook! I really liked the chapters on the history of wine. Even with all the details this textbook has, it still was fun to read. I loved all the side stories that really bring wine to life. It has great information and descriptions even for the novice. Very well written, highly recommended.
