History of wine and Samuel Pepys


Through the invisible bloggers' underground, I've been recommended a new blog on the history (and philosophy and science!) of wine.

A Most Particular Taste by Toronto wine writer St├ęphane Beauroy takes its title from a 1663 comment by Samuel Pepys, blogger avant la lettre, about a bottle of Chateau Haut-Brion.

Which reminds me that Pepys's diary is itself a blog, where you can read the current day's entries, all exhaustively annotated and commented on by a loving crew of Pepysians. The online diary has not stopped, as I reported long ago, but appears to be permanently cycling back to the beginning when it reaches the end.
