Description

Wine and The White House: A History by Frederick J. Ryan, Jr., the publisher and CEO of The Washington Post, is an informative and entertaining read for history and wine enthusiasts alike. It is a comprehensive journey through the history of White House hospitality that explores every president's experience with wine. Fully-illustrated pages feature memorable presidential toasts, menus from historic White House gatherings, a catalog of vintages served, and spectacular new photography of the White House glassware collection. Early presidents recognized the important function wine played in entertaining, and while some appreciated and enjoyed it, others considered it merely a ceremonial necessity. All presidents, regardless of whether they enjoyed wine themselves, have used the White House as a venue to showcase the fine wines produced in the United States.
