About the Author

Ronald Searle was born in Cambridge in 1920. After the Second World War he delighted millions with his comic creation of St Trinians, as well as his illustrations of cats and the foibles of wine connoisseurs among other subjects. He was a distinguished contributor to numerous magazines around the world, from The New Yorker to Le Monde. Ronald Searle died in 2011.


Vintage Ronald Searle, a wicked little offering high in acidity * Observer *
A mocking and gleefully unreliable pictorial guide to the terminology of winetasting. * Sunday Times *
He has lost none of his wonderful skill as a draughtsman and colourist. The book is an onslaught on the pretentious nonsense written and spoken about wine. * Daily Telegraph *
The ideal gift for any wine lover, any would-be wine buff or anyone else who can see the humour in the sillier aspects of wine-tasting. * What Wine *
At last - the devious ways of wine writers have been exposed... His interpretations of such apparently innocent phrases as 'full bodied' and 'distinctive nose' will certainly make you laugh aloud, and in all probability splutter in your wine glass. * Wine Times *
Comically presents, in his inimitable style, wine-drinkers of all shapes and sizes... These illustrations are definitely worth pondering over with a large glass of pinot noir! * The Oldie *
