About this Book
The Aesthetics of Wine shows that discussing wine within the framework of aesthetics both benefits our understanding of wine as a phenomenon, while also challenging some of the basic assumptions of the tradition of aesthetics.
- Analyzes the appreciation of wine as an aesthetic practice.
- Tackles prejudices against bodily senses, showing how they distort traditional aesthetic theory
- Represents the beginnings of a reformulation of general aesthetics
