Winemaking is as old as civilization itself, and this illuminating volume takes a unique solution to that history: by exploring 100 bottles that have had the biggest have an effect on at the evolution of wine. Moving from the primary cork tops to screw caps, renowned wine creator Oz Clarke presents such landmarks as the introduction of the cylindrical wine bottle within the 1780s; the primary estate to bottle and label its own wine (formerly sold in casks to merchants only); the most costly bottle sold at auction and the oldest unopened bottle; the change in classifications; and the creation of a large number of famous vintages. Fully illustrated with photographs of bottles, labels, and other images, this can be a beautiful tribute to the “bottled poetry” that may be wine.
