Product Details


“compulsory reading” – The International Wine Review

‘The product of Marc Millon’s lifelong passion for Italy, this fascinating account of the place of wine in Italian life over the centuries is an utterly absorbing read. Enjoy it with a good glass of vino to hand!’ — Fiona Beckett, Guardian wine writer

‘What a brilliant idea! Marc Millon takes us on a breezy, boozy tour through Italy’s past, serving up bite-sized historical summaries with wine pairings to reveal how wine flavours history, and history flavours wine. Bring your corkscrew!’ — Tom Standage, author of A History of the World in 6 Glasses

‘Marc Millon is a true Italian wine ambassador, and no one is better equipped to tell this story. His mouth-watering history had me drooling from the very first chapter! Packed full of personal observations and insights, it is essential reading for anyone interested in Italian wine, its past, present and future.’ — Stevie Kim, Managing Director of Vinitaly International

‘It is no negligible task to wander through the meanders of Italian culture, with which wine is so intertwined, and to grasp such an extensive history of radical transformations. Marc Millon juggles this venture with enviable mastery.’ — Piero Mastroberardino, President of the Mastroberardino winery

‘An intriguing and clever way to view Italy’s history. Italy in a Wineglass is full of curious facts and historical diversions. Best of all it helps me to make sense of the wine aisle in my local supermarket here in Genoa.’ — Nicholas Walton, author of Genoa, ‘La Superba’

‘A delectable, Epicurean celebration of the profound role wine has played, and continues to play, in Italian society. Millon’s history is hedonistic and thought-provoking in equal measure.’ — Jamie Mackay, author of The Invention of Sicily

‘It’s not often that a wine writer can engross and enthrall you with the history of a culture where wine merely plays its part along with many other players. Marc Millon does this absorbingly and impressively, telling the intriguing, exasperating, but ultimately optimistic story of Italy and its wines.’ — Oz Clarke, broadcaster, wine writer and author of The History of Wine in 100 Bottles and Wine by the Glass

Millon is a great storyteller with decades of experience of Italy’s wines, wineries and winemakers. Read it for an insider’s view of the Italian winemaking tradition, and a richly entertaining account of the country’s history seen through the bottom of a wine glass.’ — Helena Attlee, author of Lev’s Violin: An Italian Adventure and The Land Where Lemons Grow

‘Italy in a Wineglass gathers a multitude of small stories and anecdotes from which the enchantment of the richest land of vineyards arises. An excellent literary work, an innovative contribution to wine writing.’ — Sandro Boscaini, President of the Masi Agricola winery
