Catalog of the wine related library of Juan Carlos Reppucci (b. Argentina 1942, lives and works in Brazil), the owner of an importante private collection of more than 6.5 thousand titles. "An unique library dedicated to wine (wines, wineyards, grapes, vindima, viticultura, vinicultura, embriaguez, etc.). Includes dozens of incunábula and a significant number of editions from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The text by Cláudio Giordano, who has long been familiar with the Rappucci Vintage Library, shows through an accesible exposition, this universe of works that tell the millennial and facinating story of the vineyard and its products. Like one who picks grapes to make the best wine, Juan Carlos Reppucci continues the adventure begun in the 1990s unearthing books, documents and manuscripts around the world to preserve a memory with a unique identity, created to mature with time, in the manner of the best vintages." --Verso Cover CONTENTS: A voyague through civilizations purest work of art: wine! = Uma viagem a mais pura obra de arte das civilizações : o vinho! / Caros Ernesto Cabral de Mello -- The book as home = O livro como morada / Juan Carlos Reppucci -- Incunabulos = Incunabula -- Agricultura e botánica = Agriculture & botany -- Vinho e religião = Wine and religion -- Medicina = Medicine -- O novo mundo = The New World -- Plínio o velho = Pliny, the elder -- Poesía = Poetry -- Obras de arte = Works of art -- Vinho do Porto = Port wine -- Fac-similes = Facsimiles -- Uma biblioteca vinária = The vintage library.
