Since its first publication, George Saintsbury's classic Notes on a Cellar-Book has remained one of the greatest tributes to drink and drinking in the literature of wine. A collection of tasting notes, menus, and robust opinions, the work is filled with anecdotes and recollections of wines and spirits consumed―from the heights of Romanée-Conti to the simple pleasures of beer, flip, and mum.
