The Little Red Book of Wine Law
Select a format
Wine is a great passion of many professionals and this book takes an interesting look at how law and the wine have intersected, sometimes with very interesting results. In this book you'll find a number of fascinating stories that examine the various legal concepts that are related to wine, vineyards, and wine-drinking, including law suits, disputes, and more.
First, the book provides an introduction to, and survey of, the history of wine, wine business, and the laws affecting wine production and sale. Modeled after a case of wine, each of the twelve chapters, or bottles, examines a specific topic. The book examines a wide range of topics including an old requirements contract between wine producers and grape growers, family/partnership issues, relationships with distributorships, labor issues, trademark disputes, and international/global concerns when using place names on wines that do not originate from the same area.
Wine is an emotional subject for those who love it and produce it, and the cases discussed involve personal and at times very emotional disputes, some of which resulted in long and rancorous trials and appeals. This book is the second in the ABA's "Little Book" series. If you enjoyed The Little Green Book of Golf Law, you sure to find The Little Red Book of Wine Law an enjoyable addition to your library.
