About this book
A wide-ranging book written by a revered philosopher and wine columnist for the "New Statesman". Looks at wine through the lens of philosophy throughout history. Whether or not good for the body, Scruton argues, wine, drunk in the right frame of mind, is definitely good for the soul. By thinking with wine, this book tells us, the reader can learn not only to drink in thoughts, but to think in draughts.
Explains the connection between good wine and serious thought with a mix of humour and philosophy. This title argues that, whether or not good for the body, wine drunk in the right frame of mind, is definitely good for the soul, and there is no better accompaniment to wine than philosophy.
