The Magic of Wine is a loving tribute to the libation most
celebrated throughout the ages. Jacqueline Quillen, founder of
Christie's wine department, and wine enthusiast George H. Boynton,
Sr. have compiled both eloquent and amusing reflections on the gift
of the grape from a variety of notables throughout the ages. The
book includes memorable quotations from such diverse sources as
Ovid, Robert Mondavi, Ernest Hemingway, Johann Strauss, Edna St.
Vincent Millay, Alexander Pope, Shakespeare, Euripides, Jeanette
Winterson, Charles Dickens, Louis Pasteur, Isak Dinesen, Leonard
Bernstein, Mark Twain, and many, many others.
Organizing quotations into such chapters as Wine Tasting, Wine
and Health, and Humor, as well as those on individual wines such as
Claret and Port, this charming volume reveals the richness and
complexity of wine appreciation. A beautiful gift book, it is ideal
for wine lovers, epicures, and anyone who enjoys the finer things
As the authors state in the introduction: "Pulling corks
enhances conviviality and binds individuals together. We have yet
to discover a selfish wine lover. Wine begs to be shared, and we
would like to share with you in this book some of the fun and
enjoyment that wine has given to us". The Magic of Wine pays homage
to that singular substance.
