9781909108288: Reds, Whites and Varsity Blues: 60 Years of the Oxford & Cambridge Blind Wine-Tasting Competition

2013 marked the 60th anniversary of the Oxford & Cambridge varsity blind wine-tasting competition. Started in 1953 by the legendary Harry Waugh of John Harvey & Sons, the competition has been sponsored by Champagne Pol Roger since 1992. The oldest contest of its kind, the tasting match has fostered the careers of many leading members of the wine trade and press, including a number of Masters of Wine, and has cultivated fine wine enthusiasts internationally and encouraged the discipline of blind wine tasting, a notoriously difficult feat. To celebrate this iconic rivalry - rife with politics, subterfuge, camaraderie and enduring friendships - its history over six decades has now been documented, through a lavishly illustrated collection of special contributions and vivid oral histories.
