The history and stories about wine bring it to life and make it worth talking about.
The Académie du Vin Library was founded by the late Steven Spurrier and his group of friends, dedicated to publishing the finest wine writing of the past, the present and the future.
The story behind the name came from Steven’s days in Paris in the 1970s, when he began running wine appreciation courses for his English-speaking friends.
The Academie’s newly commissioned titles aim to bring you the best of modern wine writing. Not out to emulate the many excellent fact-filled volumes that form the backbone of modern wine publishing, their books are there to provide colour, background and essential understanding on which any true enjoyment of fine wine depends. It really is wine writing at its finest.
They also publish beautiful new editions of old books, but rather than simply republishing the books, add updates and additional material that appeal to a modern readership without destroying the charm and essential wisdom of the originals.
