About this item

Most accounts of wine from classical times to the present neglect to mention its importance as a source of carbohydrates, says West, the alcohol in many cases mainly serving to keep an important food from spoiling, and only secondarily a recreational or medicinal drug or a water purifier. He discusses prehistory and protohistory of wine, viniculture in Italy, viticulture, vinification, and distribution and consumption. Among specific topics are wine in the western provinces, establishing the vineyard, treading the grapes, aging, and the convivium. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
