For all those mystified by the strange pontifications of wine-buffs, Ronald Searle's The Illustrated Winespeak is the perfect guide to the meaning behind 'distinctive nose', 'full bodied' and 'elegant but lacks backbone'.

On The Illustrated Winespeak's first publication in 1983, this hilarious send-up of winetaster's jargon was hailed by 'The Financial Times' as 'one of this year's bubbling successes'.

It has since been constantly reprinted to meet demand and has become a classic of its kind. For all those mystified by the strange pontifications of wine-buffs, Ronald Searle's The Illustrated Winespeak is the perfect guide to the meaning behind 'distinctive nose', 'full bodied' and 'elegant but lacks backbone'.
