"I only mention in this Wine Lovers Dictionary what I know, what I love and what fascinates me. There is autobiography, readings, memories of vatting, cellar, table... Here is however the essential: wine is culture. The culture of the vine, but also culture for the spirit. It is this cultural dimension of a universal consumer product that this book has ambition to recall, in a time when wine is not well considered.

Perhaps it will come as a surprise that I often speak with lightness and amusement about a subject that moistens our mouths and our souls? This is my way of taking it seriously. I have gay wine. Why would my ink be acidic, harsh or thick? There is an expression that clearly reflects the social role of wine in our country: “wine of honor”. This Love Dictionary would like to be a joyous wine of honor." BP
