    I got my set of Foods of the World by Time Life in 1969 I have enjoyed looking through them over the many years But I seldom would read one cover to cover My daughter the sommelier was here on the 4th of July and talking about her current wine program for her 4th level She was studying for her test on spirits so I pulled this book off the shelf She said she had so many books to study from that she didn t need another This one is dated being from the late 60 s Upon glancing through it, she was intrigued how some of the bottles and labels have changed in the last 50 years She went home and I started reading the book Fortunately after almost 50 years living nearby the vineyards of northern California and having a wine professional daughter, I am aware of many things on this subject and have enjoyed some fine glasses of wine over the years Alec Waugh had been drinking wine for almost 40 years in the late 60 s when he wrote this informative book for the general reader Of course many of the vintages he talks about are long gone and new tastes prevail But it is interesting to read the history and see what never changes.

    I would really enjoy getting into this book, which is a serious, historical treatment of the subject Unfortunately, I ve killed too many brain cells.
