Two Spanish books have been awarded the prize awarded by the International Organization of Vine and Wine, this is the OIV prize.
The wine of the pharaohs He tells us about the winemaking tradition in Egypt of the pharaohs, a book that introduces us to the history of wine and that has been awarded the prize given by this organization in the history, literature and fine arts category. Now that we remember, in Direct to the Palate we have talked about a scientific investigation where it was shown that the Egyptians also made white wine.
But back to the subject, this is undoubtedly a book for any good winemaker to have in his private library, knowing about the history of wine is important and allows us to value even more this emblematic and transcendental drink. Maria Luz Mandago Alonso has carefully prepared this majestic work as a result of her work and experience with respect to the cuisine and Egyptian culture of wine. The second award-winning book, Strategic plan for the commercialization of wine with Designation of Origin Calatayud, is a book aimed at marketing and winemaking, where through the example on how Calatayud wine has been promoted and marketed, advice is provided that can be applied anywhere in the world. It is a reflection on the future of the commercialization of the wines of the area in a collective way.
The cost of the book The wine of the pharaohs is perhaps somewhat high, 80 euros, although it will surely be a work that deserves it. On the other hand, we have not found the price of the book Strategic Plan for the commercialization of wine with Designation of Origin Calatayud, we assume that it will appear on the web shortly.
