Books for wine lovers
by those in the know

“The books that taught me about wine were about places and people. It’s the history and stories about a wine that bring it to life and make it worth talking about.”

– Steven Spurrier

Taking our lead from Steven, our aim at the Académie du Vin Library is to bring you the very best wine writing of the past, the present and the future. Some of our books are undisputed classics – refreshed for today’s reader but without losing any of the charm, or wisdom, of a more innocent time. Our new titles are, we believe, destined to become the classics of the future: easy to read, easy on the eye, and all with something new and important to say.

We like to think of ourselves not just as publishers and booksellers, but as a community of wine lovers, united by a passion for learning more about what makes the wine world so special. We hope you will join us. Happy reading!
