Item Description...
Cigar box. Bacon Character. Fleshy overtones. Extracted
palate. Barnyard. That wine could have such associations
might cause the uninitiated to regard wine verbiage as
barnyard in its own right. Though these idioms do have
a practical value to the professional wine taster, the
stereotype (serious, bow-tied old men making bizarre
characterizations in between gurgles) doesn t need much
comedic assistance, similar to that of the secret
handshakes of Masons.
Illustrated by the well-known Australian cartoonist Roger
Roberts, this charming little book explores this curious
realm of wine terminology by creating a visual lexicon on
the far side of a wine world where its language
( barnyard, exotic nose ) is taken literally. Sometimes
brash, sometimes cute, Robert s work is always good for a
In between Robert s visual puns, professional wine taster
Judy Valon gives a serious and solid primer on enjoying
red, white, sparkling and fortified wines, how to identify
wine faults, proper entertaining and serving procedures,
and, of course, the functioning definitions of common
tasting terms.
The book is also loaded with delightful classic and
obscure wine aphorisms, such as:
Wine is the proof that God loves us, and loves to see us
happy. --Benjamin Franklin
My only regret in life is that I did not drink more
Champagne. --John Maynard Keynes

Reviews - What do our customers think?
WINE CARTOONS  Oct 28, 2007
Searching for a fun gift for a fellow wine geek, I found VINE LINES just right, the right size, the right cost and great fun. This Australian cartoonist understands a great deal about wine and it's terminology, particularly descriptive phrases. "Laying wine Down" is depicted by a cartoon showing a cherished bottle being tucked into bed. Lots of spoofing of common wine terms in high quality color cartoons. Always in good taste and good artistic style.
