<<< Unfortunately no one has done a CA on wine...if anyone would like to, I'd
certainly consider publishing it!!  And it's a great topic.  Maybe Stefan
has something in his "Flory-thingey."

There are many, many books on wine. The thought of trying to do a Compleat Anachronist on the subject is staggering.

And CAs tend to be much more complete than what I have in the Florilegium, except for copies of at least one CA. :-)

Here is what I do have in the Florilegium. Most of what I have on the types of wine is in the wine-msg file but it is hardly comprehensive, but hopefully it does give some ideas about wines and how they were thought of. These are in the BEVERAGES section.

Eiswein-msg (11K) 10/ 1/04 Wine made from grapes left on the vine until after the first frost.
Okay, more on modern than period usage, but this list was the first I ever heard of this, so I thought some folks might be interested.

fruit-wines-msg (26K) 12/10/09 Non-grape fruit wines.

wine-msg (143K) 12/10/09 Medieval wines.

Vintng-Harvst-art (24K) 4/ 5/09 "A Vineyard Experiment" by Baron Damon Hroarsson.
