The Magic of Wine
This tucks nicely into a wine-basket you're creating for a friend. While it's small and relatively short, it's chock-full of interesting quotes and timely quotes.
It covers everything from Alcaeus ("The best medicine is wine") to Leonard Bernstein ("Wine snobbery, of course, is part showmanship, part sophistication, part knowledge and part bluff.")
In fact, be sure to grab yourself a copy too. It's great to read by a fire, with a glass of wine in your hand!
