Illustrated Winespeak (Hardback)


Vintage Ronald Searle, a wicked little offering high in acidity

SKU: 9780285625921


On The Illustrated Winespeak's first publication in 1983, this hilarious send-up of winetaster's jargon was hailed by 'The Financial Times' as "one of this year's bubbling successes". It has since been constantly reprinted to meet demand and has become a classic of its kind. For all those mystified by the strange pontifications of wine-buffs, Ronald Searle's The Illustrated Winespeak is the perfect guide to the meaning behind "distinctive nose", "full bodied" and "elegant but lacks backbone".
