The great history of French wines is full of all these little stories which reflect the diversity and richness of our vineyards.
Vine and wine have left their mark on geography and economy, archeology and history, mythologies and religions, arts and traditions, law and medicine, landscapes and architectures, techniques and industries. Not only did they shape landscapes and promote trade, but they also helped forge traditions and eating habits.
From the invention of the barrel by the Gauls to that of the cork stopper and the glass bottle, from the Burgundian law to the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855, Éric Glatre has selected for us 33 dates among those which shaped French vineyards as we know them today.
This book is for all readers who love wine and history, they will be able (and it is highly recommended!) to consume it without any moderation other than that which they wish to impose on themselves.
