Since its first publication in 1920, George Saintsbury's classic "Notes on a Cellar-Book" has remained one of the greatest tributes to drink and drinking in the literature of wine. A collection of tasting notes, menus, and robust opinions, the work is filled with anecdotes and recollections of wines and spirits consumed - from the heights of Romanee-Conti to the simple pleasures of beer, flip, and mum. Thomas Pinney brings this unique work alive for contemporary audiences by providing the keys to a full understanding of "Notes on a Cellar-Book" in a new edition that includes explanatory endnotes, an essay on the book's legacy, and additional articles on wine by Saintsbury.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An indispensable read... Saintsbury's thoughtful love of drink comes through clearly." SF Chronicle As much a model for wine writing as ... an historical document revealing how wines were once regarded and how times have changed. -- John Mariani Bloomberg News "If you love to drink wine, and love a good read, you have to get ahold of this book." Vinography A glimpse into our viticultural past, as well as a revelation of how great wine and great literature can go hand-in-hand. Good Wine Under $20 "Few wine books posses the iconic status of George Saintsbury's Notes on a Cellar-Book." Wine Spectator "There is much food for thought here, and a facinating window on another age of connoisseurship. " -- Jancis Robinson Jancisrobinson.com "Read this book twice: once without pausing to flip back and forth-you'll be beguiled, befuddled and amused-and then once with the notes." The Wine News
