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
