Parker, Jr. and the Reign of American Taste by Elin McCoy • Understanding Wine Labels: A Complete Guide to the Wine Labels of the World (Mitchell Beazley Wine Made Easy) by Simon Woods • Spinning the Bottle by Harvey Posert • Wine Label Language by Peter Saunders • Soils for Fine Wines by Robert E. White • Imagery: Art for Wine by Bob L. Nugent “The wine label is a powerful icon of modern civilization. It is a precious object of art that symbolizes and disseminates the cultural and spiritual values of the land where wine is grown…Wine label design has undergone a renaissance where art meets marketing in the most powerful way, penetrating the subconscious, utilizing the power of suggestion to imply flavor and quality.” Icon: Art of the Wine Label by Jeffrey Caldeway and Chuck House, May 2003
