I feel a simultaneous sense of pride and pleasure at seeing a new edition of The World of Fine Wine. This issue is the annual Burgundy edition. As the rest of the edition asks such questions as ‘Is this the Golden Age?’, I explore the various ways humans have sought meaning in wine.

The meaning of wine is a delicious intersection where wine and humans collide and one worth pondering.
