Very few books have products as diverse as those of the grape vine: even fewer have products with such a cultural significance. Wine and the Vine provides an introduction to the historical geography of viticulture and the wine trade from prehistory to the present. It considers wine as both a unique expression of the interaction of people in a particular environment, rich in symbol and meaning, and a commercial product of great economic importance to particular regions.

Wine and the Vine provides an introduction to the historical geography of viticulture and the wine trade from prehistory to the present. Throughout, the rich symbolic and cultural significance of wine is related to its evolution as a commercial product. The book discusses both the numerous symbolic roles assigned to wine and the vine by people of different religions and also the internationalisation of wine production and marketing.From Library Journal:
This unique study delves into the origins of wine and grapes, tracing their use and development through the Middle Ages to the present. Reviewing the relationship between history, geography, and viticulture, Unwin discusses symbolism, society, traditions, chemistry, and wine production in each era. An extensive bibliography and a precise glossary of wine measures conclude the book. The well-organized material reads like a doctoral thesis, reflecting Unwin's scholastic research background. Too detailed and serious for casual readers, this will challenge even intellectual enologists. The chapters on trade development in Europe, the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand may interest those involved in wine marketing. An optional purchase for specialized collections.
