On The Illustrated Winespeak's first publication in 1983, this hilarious send-up of winetaster's jargon was hailed by 'The Financial Times' as "one of this year's bubbling successes". It has since been constantly reprinted to meet demand and has become a classic of its kind. For all those mystified by the strange pontifications of wine-buffs, Ronald Searle's The Illustrated Winespeak is the perfect guide to the meaning behind "distinctive nose", "full bodied" and "elegant but lacks backbone".

MEDIA REVIEWS
Vintage Ronald Searle, a wicked little offering high in acidity * Observer *
A mocking and gleefully unreliable pictorial guide to the terminology of winetasting. * Sunday Times *
He has lost none of his wonderful skill as a draughtsman and colourist. The book is an onslaught on the pretentious nonsense written and spoken about wine. * Daily Telegraph *
The ideal gift for any wine lover, any would-be wine buff or anyone else who can see the humour in the sillier aspects of wine-tasting. * What Wine *
At last - the devious ways of wine writers have been exposed... His interpretations of such apparently innocent phrases as 'full bodied' and 'distinctive nose' will certainly make you laugh aloud, and in all probability splutter in your wine glass. * Wine Times *
Comically presents, in his inimitable style, wine-drinkers of all shapes and sizes... These illustrations are definitely worth pondering over with a large glass of pinot noir! * The Oldie *
