Book excerpt: - Beautiful new highly collectible paperback series, with strong design, publishing the best of classic wine texts - New foreword from Fiona Morrison MW, world-famous wine writer and maker, for whom this is a favorite book - A love letter to wine by Maurice Healy, well-respected expert and great friend of Andre Simon, and a great guide for anyone wanting to learn more about European wines in the first half of the twentieth century Stay Me With Flagons was Healy's love letter to wine, and to the wines he enjoyed with friends during his long study of the subject. He takes you on a comprehensive tour of Europe, visiting all the key wine regions of the time, and sometimes commenting on the impact of the Second World War on wine production. Originally written in 1940, this edition was first published after Healy's premature death in 1950 with notes from his great friend Ian Maxwell Campbell, including insertions when he disagreed with this friend! An elegiac and yet often humorous study of wine, which is as readable now as it was then. With a new foreword by winemaking and wine-writing expert, Fiona Morrison MW. The Classic Editions breathe new life into some of the finest wine-related titles written in the English language over the last 150 years. Although these books are very much products of their time - a time when the world of fine wine was confined mostly to the frontiers of France and the Iberian Peninsula and a First Growth Bordeaux or Grand Cru Burgundy wouldn't be beyond the average purse - together they recapture a world of convivial, enthusiastic amateurs and larger-than-life characters whose love of fine vintages mirrored that of life itself.
