Great for those that want the detail of port at the academic and historical level. Looking for a "junk food" level tour of this wine style, go elsewhere! In depth and enteresting. Get a favorite Port, and enjoy this one!

Gave this book to a good friend who has formed a circle of fellow connoisseurs of port wine.

I read enough of the book to know that it contains some interesting background on the particularities of this specialty product and its history.

Definitely not for the general audience, but appropriate for the aficionado.

Good source for rare and out of print books.
