Wine through the pages
Written by Yves Leccia, published in
During the winter months it is always a pleasure to sink into a nice soft armchair, cover yourself with a blanket and open a beautiful book. All this by the fire to bring a little warmth to our hearts. It is while thinking of such moments that we wanted to make a selection of books dedicated to the world of wine. Whether you are a beginner or not, you will find what you are looking for to perfect your moment of idleness by the fireplace.
1. Wine is not rocket science
Written by Ophélie Neiman, now better known under the pseudonym of "Miss Glouglou", this book is clear, simple and full of practical information about wine for beginners and connoisseurs alike. Throughout the pages we appreciate the practical tips given by Ophélie: tips that can be used on a daily basis! In short, this is a wine book that is accessible to all and that will allow you to show off at the table.
2. Wine posters
Much more graphic, this book takes you on a journey through the history of wine and spirits thanks to the eye of the very passionate Emmanuel Lopez. This collection of wine posters reveals the evolution of graphic styles over time. From the end of the 19th century to the 1980s, Mondo Vino's advertisers have produced some truly illustrated masterpieces.
3. Wine and me
Enjoy the pen of the famous columnist at the weekly Le Point, Jacques Dupont. His latest book, published in November 2016, looks back on his life as a critic; Mr Dupont shares personal anecdotes and recounts memories of press trips. Throughout the pages, we like to find her characteristic slightly offbeat and poetic tone. Immersion in the daily life of a wine journalist is guaranteed.
4. My first wine cellar
Olivier Bompas, also a wine journalist and trained oenologist, is aimed at neophytes who would like to build up a wine cellar but do not know where to start! Written in collaboration with Béatrice Mialon, who now works in a wine cellar, this guide has selected the best wines from each region so that you can start without any complexes. The book is full of tips and good advice. You will know everything about the wines that will soon fill the floors of your cellar; those that can be drunk immediately as well as those that should be carefully kept over time.
All that remains is for us to wish you good reading!
