9780285627659: Something in the Cellar . . .: Ronald Searle's Wonderful World of Wine

This lighthearted look at the secrets of the world's wine ceremonies invites vintners and wine drinkers to experience the mysteries of wine and its production. Illustrated in Searle's inimitable style are the ancient noble ceremony of slashing the trockenbeerenauslese, the inauguration of the first authentic denominazione di origine controllata e garantita, and the vinolympics. For wine lovers who have never tasted ptolemy nouveau or watched the uncorking of the kangarouge, these experiences are related with warmth and humor. The many ways to open a bottle of wine are illustrated, and the rituals and delights of wine around the world are described.
