It follows, for this reason, good wine-drinker ...knows rather well that his trusty beverage isn't mere alcohol, yet alcohol transformed and corrected by means of the opposite and extra considerable materials of wine.

Then Mr. Hawker permits mild upon the pitfalls into which the green customer of wines is vulnerable to stumble by the hands of unscrupulous wine retailers and lodge and eating place owners, and upon quite a few nefarious "tricks of (he trade." which aren't missing in crafty and ingenuity. all of it makes very friendly analyzing, as additionally do the different chapters on "Doctors and Wine" and at the wines of France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Australia and California.
