While Port and Madeira are properly covered, the book’s main emphasis is on the table wines now becoming so popular in Britain. It is written with Raymond Postgate’s customary blend of entertainment and scholarship, combining topography and local history with information about the origins, growth and qualities of the wines the visitor to Portugal or Madeira may choose, as well as those exported to Britain.
