Sediment' takes a wry look at the social, financial, personal and marital issues surrounding middle-aged, middle-class wine drinking. Covering such vital topics as befriending a wine merchant, high-street wine from supermarkets and corner shops, tools of the trade like the pichet and tumblers, dining-table wine etiquette, wine in a box, the cubi flagon, wine drinking in the Georgian era, and even homage to le Piat d'Or, 'Sediment' is not a book that takes wine too seriously. Instead, it wrestles it out of the bottle, pins it down and makes it tell the truth - in language we can all understand.
