Jan 04, Joe rated it really liked it His politics are deplorable, but I couldnt help liking this book. It is in parts superbly written and promotes the view that wine should be chosen and relished according to where the grapes are grown rather than the variety of grape. Also, that drinking should be in moderation in line with an Aristotelian golden mean to facilitate good conversation, companionship etc.
The attempt to link drinking with the divine were less convincing for an atheist reader. The passages on buying and drinking in rounds a very good thing and drinking cola and Lucozade a very bad thing are fantastic, as is the guide for what to drink whilst reading a particular philosopher.
But for the political and religious advocacy it would get five stars. It is irreverent and funny, but at the same time, wise. Like a good wine, the book is full of layers of complexity leaving a lasting impression on the reader long after youve put the book down.
I recommend this book only to a rare fewthose with both an intense interest in wine and a healthy appetite for lengthy discussions of philosophy. In vino veritas! This is a deceptively deep book, an exciting read, and the best possible justification for the virtuous consumption of wine.
I recommend this book only to a rare few—those with both an intense interest in wine and a healthy appetite for lengthy discussions of philosophy. Scruton is a first-rate contemporary philosopher who weaves substantive thought and history into this prose meditation on wine, from phenomenological analysis to its significance in the cultural history of the western world.
Oct 21, Mauro rated it really liked it This book flows like a long conversation, that sometimes roam aimlessly but always go back to the main subject - which is not wine. Wine, for Scruton, is but an excuse to show us his founded thoughts on virtue, especially on temperance. Of course he also gives very interesting views on what to drink - the last chapter bears recomendations on what wine to take with each philosopher - but for us, in South America, those are hard to follow advices, at least when the dolar ratings go skyrocketing as This book flows like a long conversation, that sometimes roam aimlessly but always go back to the main subject - which is not wine.
Of course he also gives very interesting views on what to drink - the last chapter bears recomendations on what wine to take with each philosopher - but for us, in South America, those are hard to follow advices, at least when the dolar ratings go skyrocketing as it has done in Brazil in the last few months.
Another piece of advice you cannot take, when you live down here, is the one against traveling: not getting away from South America, at least from time to time, is to be doomed to face all the ugliness the mix of progressive thinking and capitalism-gone-wild built upon this land. Scruton is probably the best example that conservative thinkers are easier read than the progressive ones: the vocabulary is clear, mentions to other authors come with a short explanation, and the whole books makes you feel like going after other books.
You rarely find that in progressive, leftist, authors. A good book on wine, a very good talk on philosophy. It reads as if you are with a friendly teacher, sipping good wine under the mysterios geometry of the stars.
