9780708323212: Wine Drinking Culture in France: A National Myth or a Modern Passion? (University of Wales Press - French and Francophone Studies)

Wine drinking culture has traditionally been a source of pride for the French. In fact, to many it is an essential part of what it means to be French. In Wine Drinking Culture in France, Marion Demossier examines wine consumption in France since the 1970s, arguing that it cannot be separated from the wider cultural context in which it takes place but also revealing how recent social, economic, and political forces have transformed wine’s role in constructing France’s national identity.

Book Description University of Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 214 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book provides a new interpretation of the relationship between consumption, drinking culture, memory and cultural identity in an age of rapid political and economic change. Using France as a case-study it explores the construction of a national drinking culture - the myths, symbols and practices surrounding it - and then through a multisited ethnography of wine consumption demonstrates how that culture is in the process of being transformed. Wine drinking culture in France has traditionally been a source of pride for the French and in an age of concerns about the dangers of binge-drinking , a major cause of jealousy for the British. Wine drinking and the culture associated with it are, for many, an essential part of what it means to be French, but they are also part of a national construction. Described by some as a national product, or as a totem drink , wine and its attendant cultures supposedly characterise Frenchness in much the same way as being born in France, fighting for liberty or speaking French. Yet this traditional picture is now being challenged by economic, social and political forces that have transformed consumption patterns and led to the fragmentation of wine drinking culture. The aim of this book is to provide an original account of the various causes of the long-term decline in alcohol consumption and of the emergence of a new wine drinking culture since the 1970s and to analyse its relationship to national and regional identity.
