ATG Quirkies: Ever been to a five-star wine library?

Well if not, Jane Anson’s piece on the Decanter website entitled Inside the ‘world’s greatest wine library’  will help remedy that oversight.  Ms. Anson graciously takes us on a tour of this essential, but little known part of the world-famous wine learning centre at UC Davis.  We accompany her as she walks through rows of students preparing for exams, passes by stacks of books, broadsides, newsletters, scrapbooks” and other assorted publications, and finally down stairs to Special Collections which includes old maps and wine labels dating back to the 1500s.  And that’s not all!

Of course, we don’t want to spoil all the fun.  So to get the complete tour you’ll need to click on the article and do some exploring on your own.
