9780520253520: Notes on a Cellar-Book

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 Romanée-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.

About the Author:

George Saintsbury (1845-1933) was a journalist, reviewer, critic, editor, and Professor of Literature at the University of Edinburgh. Thomas Pinney is Professor of English Emeritus at Pomona College. Among other books, he is author of A History of Wine in America (in two volumes from UC Press).

Review:

“An indispensable read.. . . Saintsbury's thoughtful love of drink comes through clearly.” (SF Chronicle 2008-11-28)

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 an historical document revealing how wines were once regarded and how times have changed.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 2008-12-01)

“If you love to drink wine, and love a good read, you have to get ahold of this book.” (Vinography 2009-04-19)

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 2008-12-11)

“Few wine books posses the iconic status of George Saintsbury’s Notes on a Cellar-Book.” (Wine Spectator 2008-12-31)

“There is much food for thought here, and a facinating window on another age of connoisseurship. “ (Jancis Robinson Jancisrobinson.com 2008-12-18)

“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 2008-12-01)
