After centuries of writing about wine, some of it from personages as eminent as Ovid and Goethe, it must seem hardly possible to write anything new and insightful about wine. Over the centuries, even the most clever sentences have turned into clichs, nevertheless... There is something of a ritual in the planting, pressing, barreling, and bottling of wine, and then in opening the bottle, smelling, tasting, and commenting. The shapes of the grapes, barrels, bottles, labels, glasses, decanters and the corkscrew have all provided inspiration, with many pictorial and contextual associations.
