Rod Phillips is a professor of history at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. He has written a number of books on European history, and, more recently, on the history of food and drink, with books including A Short History of Wine, Alcohol: A History (named a Book of the Year for 2014 on jancisrobinson.com), and French Wine: A History. General Editor of the forthcoming six-volume A Cultural History of Alcohol, he writes regularly for the wine media and also judges in wine competitions.

‘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
